Cotswold Airport – Update March 2021

Cotswold Airport have advised that the roadmap out of lockdown published by the government will see activities resuming at the airport and residents should to expect to see an increase in activity from 29th March and then again from the 12th of April.  The airport have advised that with so many pilots now nearly 12 months behind in their flying training and so many qualified pilots needing to regain currency, they expect an initial surge of activity through into summer. The airport plans to limit the number of visiting pilots for the first few weeks, so as to help slowly build movements back up and ensure, they meet their strict safety policy.

Update: Station Road Bridge 22 February 2021

Network Rail have advised that the bridge has been scanned  using ground penetrating RADAR and the drilling of some trial holes will hopefully locate precisely where voids may be in the structure. Once they have the results of this, in the next fortnight, they’ll be able to decide how best to repair and maintain the bridge.
