Skyport today advises the public that it will be relocating a number of trees from the existing terminal to be replanted at the new terminal.
As a result of the relocation, Cahow Way will be operating as one-lane traffic from August 19 to 25 and bike parking and short-term parking will be closed from August 27 to September 10, in addition to the Cahow Way one-lane traffic restriction. Signage will be in place to remind drivers of the restrictions. Any vehicle left unattended in this area between August 27 and September 10 will be moved at the owner’s risk and expense.
Mikaela Pearman, Marketing & Communications Officer, Skyport, says: “We would like to thank the public in advance for its patience while we relocate eight trees to the site of the new passenger terminal building. We kindly advise motorists to allow extra time when coming to the airport as delays are expected.”
The first phase will begin on August 19 and includes removing Mexican Palm Trees from the perimeter grass way on the Castle Harbour side of the property. The work will take place from 8am to 11am to ensure minimal disruption.
The second phase will start on September 3 where the crane will be positioned in the bike parking lot next to the short-term parking lots to remove additional palm trees. The lots will be closed to all vehicles and temporary bike parking will be located behind the taxi hut past the long-term parking area.
The relocation of the trees is part of Skyport’s broader corporate social responsibility, which focuses not only on protection of the environment but also social investment, education, training and development.
