Framed Print of Runway construction JLP01_08_007948

Runway construction JLP01_08_007948

Runway construction JLP01_08_007948

RAF Gaydon, Gaydon, Stratford-on-Avon, Warwickshire. Work underway on the construction of a new runway at Gaydon Airfield, showing a Wright's roller and a pedestrian roller compacting the concrete working course.
Work began on the construction of a runway at Gaydon Airfield in early 1952. As part of the project, a former runway, largely abandoned following the Second World War, was superseded by a newly constructed runway nearly 1 3/4 miles long and 200 feet wide. Also built were access tracks and a taxi-track. The runway was constructed on 8 inches of hardcore, with four inches of concrete laid on top, followed by 12 inches of high grade concrete, and completed with 2 1/2 inches of tarmacadam and 1 1/2 inches of bituminous macadam. This photograph was published in the March 1953 edition of Team Spirit, the Laing employee newsletter
