Over $3.8 million in grant funding en route to regional airports

Regional and remote airports across Western Australia are invited to apply for the 2019-21 round of Regional Airports Development Scheme (RADS) grants.

This round of grants, totalling more than $3.8 million, will provide vital funding to help upgrade infrastructure and safety at regional airports throughout WA.

A total of 29 regional airport projects were granted more than $2.7 million from the 2017-19 RADS funding round.

The projects funded included runway widening and resealing, solar runway lighting, construction of a helicopter landing site, security upgrades and fencing to keep animals off the runway.

The RADS grants are funded through the WA Department of Transport, with applications for the 2019-21 round closing on Monday November 19, 2018.
