During works, the Airstrip will be closed to all air traffic other than Emergency Services, with an exception over the Easter break when the Airstrip will be open to all air traffic.
This project is funded in combination by the Shire, Augusta Aero Club and the Regional Airport Development Scheme grant funding.
