Evenes, Norway, 20-2-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — Lemminkäinen has won a contract for the re-surfacing of Harstad/Narvik Airport Evenes. The contract is a joint venture between Lemminkäinen and Nordasfalt. Work will start in June 2014 and be completed by August 2014. Lemminkäinen owns 50% of Nordasfalt.
The contract comprises the laying of a new asphalt surface on the main runway and the runway shoulders.
“Evenes Airport passenger traffic amounts to about 600 000 passengers annually. The re-surfacing work will not interfere with air traffic,” says Gunnar Unstad, regional director at Lemminkäinen.
