Montreal-Trudeau: Restoration and Standardization of Taxiway A, May 20 to September 30, 2008

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) announces that Taxiway A (Alpha), which runs alongside Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport's Runway 06R-24L, will be closed from May 20 to September 30 to undergo $12 million worth of maintenance work required for the facilities to remain compliant with reliability and safety standards.

The work will include refurbishment of Taxiway A and the holding bay for Runway 24L, widening of Taxiway A, restoration of the drainage system, continuation of the electrical systems installation program, and land-grading work all around the facilities.

ADM will also be continuing its program to replace runway and taxiway lighting with LED lamps, which consume a third of the energy used by traditional lights.

The work will require a temporary change to the soundscape in some neighbourhoods surrounding Montreal-Trudeau. During this period, takeoffs from Runway 24L will be very restricted, resulting in increased takeoffs from Runways 24R and 28 (see enclosed plan available at the following address: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/taxiwayA_eng.pdf).
