Some folks were surprised when American Express
Back in December I wrote that stacking bureaucratic projects would inevitably delay the project’s completion.
I don’t think anyone believes that the new terminal will really open in 2021.
Here, I think, is another great example of just how delayed aviation projects get. Funding for new runway lights at the three New York airports was allocated in 2007 and the project has not yet been completed.
The idea is that “red signals to warn pilots of another plane nearby.”
“The FAA must get this working, ASAP. New York’s airspace is the busiest in the nation, yet JFK, LaGuardia and Newark Airports have been sent to the back of the FAA line for installation of this critical runway lighting system,” he said. “We cannot wait for a deadly collision to occur.”
The FAA says “the system will be complete at LaGuardia this spring, at Newark this fall, and at JFK in two phases this year and next.”
Eight to nine years for runway lights that will warn of collision with other aircraft. But they’re going to build a new terminal in seven?
