MUST READ: Newcastle airport project goes the legal route – (update)

The Newcastle Airport terminal building project has gone the legal route.

In response to a request for further updates from the media, the municipality replied the matter was now before council’s attorney.

Officials said a letter of demand was sent to the contractor.

According to the municipality, this letter detailed the ‘submissions as council for the speedy resolution of all outstanding payments to subcontractors’.

“In response to the letter of demand,” read the municipality’s response last week, “a meeting has been arranged today with the project manager and the main contractor, and we should finalise same today and move forward with the completion certificates.”

In the last report on the project in July, officials stated the issuing of an Occupation Certificate was all that remained.

However, the project stood at 99 per cent complete. Previously it was stated nonpayment to the sub-contractors involved with the CCTV system, air conditioning units and water supply meant these could not be signed off.

This further delayed SA Airlink from moving in. The municipality also had to resolve an additional snag in terms of a request to upgrade a non-directional beacon at the airport to a GPS device.

An instrumental approach would help in misty conditions. There has been no further update on if tenders had indeed gone out for the fuel service provider and coffee shop/ restaurant, and if anyone successful bidders were identified.
