At the military airfield in the Russian city of Engels, a new runway has been built. The object has been put into operation and is intended for temporary use by the military forces.
As Construction.ru was told on February 26th by the press office of the Federal Agency for the Special Construction of the Russian Federation, several taxi tracks, drainage facilities, disposal facilities, radio gear, and power engineering equipment has been built there.
The first flight strip at this airfield was built as far back as 1955 and doesn’t meet the current requirements of modern aviation technology.
At present, the second phase of the reconstruction is being carried out at the airfield.
