Katanning Airport upgrade
Project Status: completed
The $650,000 Katanning Airport upgrade, completed June 2013, part-funded with a $322,600 grant through the Royalties for Region's Regional Airports Development Scheme awarded to the Shire of Katanning.
The sealing and widening of the runway to an 'all-weather' standard improves safety and accessibility for Royal Flying Doctor Service medical evacuations and emergency service situations such as flood, fire and natural disaster relief.
The upgrade will also benefit a range of other services using the Katanning Airport such as the local gold mining industry, the Australian Defence Force and other private users.
