The deterioration of the airstrips and air terminals in the country has caused that even gangs of the Ministry of Public Works (MOP) have to make repairs.
A few days ago, a crew of the Canabo Regional Directorate of the MOP completed the rehabilitation works of several internal sections of the secondary tracks and the aircraft parking area of the Marcos A. Gelabert International Airport, in Albrook , Ancón district.
The entity informed, through a statement, that they used 150 tons of asphalt and that the works were executed after a “request for support”, made by the Civil Aviation Authority (AAC) of Panama.
They detailed that the works consisted of the “lifting” of the damaged asphalt folder, placement of the asphalt mixture for the conformation of the new folder and the compaction. That is, what is popularly known as patching.
