1. Reconstruction of apron pavement The results of the reconstruction: construction of rigid pavement in the areas of increased load, improved pavement smoothness, stopped pavement disintegration; installation of the linear water collection system; construction of the side safety strip equipped with side apron lights; reconstruction of ramp lighting supports. The reconstructed pavement area is about 235,000 m². 26.3 EU Cohesion Fund, Republic of Lithuania, Vilnius Airport Implemented 2010-2011
2. Reconstruction of taxiways D and F The results of the reconstruction: reconstruction of pavement of taxiways (about 43989 m²), construction of a new pavement of taxiways (about 1337 m²), installation of the side safety strip of taxiways (about 972 m²). The total area of reconstructed and constructed pavement is about 46298 m². In addition, surface wastewater networks of the taxiways, pavement drainage, taxiway lights, etc. were reconstructed and constructed. 4.55 EU Cohesion Fund, Republic of Lithuania, Vilnius Airport Implemented 2010-2011
3. Reconstruction of the fire rescue station The following premises are planned for the new fire rescue station: premises for washing fire hoses, storing fire hoses and fighting clothing, drying of fire-resistant costumes, filling up breathing cylinders; classroom which would also serve as headquarters of the Emergency Operations Centre in the event of accident. All premises are planned on the same floor (except for watcher’s) and arranged around individual parking spaces of fire trucks in order to ensure a quick access of fire-fighters to fire trucks. It is planned to reconstruct 1652,34 m² of the building. 7.90 EU Cohesion Fund, Republic of Lithuania, Vilnius Airport In progress 2013-2014
4. Reconstruction of the perimeter fence It is projected to replace the existing reinforced concrete structures by the sections of net fence with acoustic elements in order to protect the neighboring residents from the harmful effect of noise. It is also planned to replace the existing entrance gate in order enhance aviation security. A part of the existing fence is also within the boundaries of the flight zone; therefore, it is necessary to move it further from the runway. It is also planned to build a physical barrier to prevent animals from entering the aircraft manoeuvre field. The reconstruction is projected to cover about 11 km of the perimeter fence. 11.96 EU Cohesion Fund, Republic of Lithuania, Vilnius Airport In progress 2013-2015
5. Reconstruction project of the passenger terminal galleries Vilnius Airport aims to optimise the passenger flows, to implement the concept of a single check and to prevent the access of unchecked passengers to the security restricted area. It is also sought to shorten the duration of transfer of the passengers of connective flights from 40 to 20 minutes. It is aimed to direct the flows of passengers arriving from the European Union airports and from other airports, where aviation safety standards are recognised as equivalent to the EU standards, to the sterile zone. To this end, the Passenger Terminal located at Rodūnios road 2, Vilnius, must be reconstructed and the following aviation security facilities must be purchased: 4 (four) one-way passage blocks grouped by 2 (two) gates (doors). 3.20 EU Cohesion Fund, Republic of Lithuania, Vilnius Airport In progress 2012-2013
6. Surface wastewater handling project By implementing the project, Vilnius Airport seeks to reduce the pollution of surface wastewater to permissible standards, to renovate the surface wastewater networks of the southern part of the aerodrome by connecting them to the common municipal wastewater network. The surface wastewater treatment facilities will be intended for removing the surface wastewater pollutants from the entire waterproof cover in the existing territory (southern part) of the airport. The surface wastewater treatment facilities in the south-eastern part of the aerodrome are planned to be connected to the existing surface wastewater collection system and into a newly designed surface semi-clean industrial wastewater collection system. The surface wastewater treatment facilities will clean industrial wastewater of the airport in wintertime. In summer, when the source of pollution is absent, the wastewater collection system will work as it used to until now, i.e. as a surface wastewater collection and drainage network. Only the removal of oil products from the ramp surface wastewater is planned in summer. 10.04Republic of Lithuania, Vilnius Airport To be implemented 2014-2015
7. Preparation of Master Plan The master plan of Vilnius Airport has already been prepared by assessing the variety of possible scenarios for further development and environment of the airport in the perspective of one or another scenario. The plan identifies actions and establishes the sequence of their performance, thus creating preconditions for consistent implementation of the selected optimal scenario of the Airport development. 1.00 Vilnius International Airport 2012
8. Preparation of a set of territorial planning documents The preparation of a set of special and detailed plans aiming to establish the mode of management and use of the territory, to determine the boundaries of the sanitary protection zone and to form an optimal territory required for the activity of the airport is underway 0.60 Vilnius International Airport In progress 2011-2016
9. VIP LoungeThe project is implemented to ensure adequate reception of guests arriving in Lithuania during Lithuania’s presidency over the European Union Council. A new VIP Lounge will have the capacity to handle 10–12 delegations (up to 70 people) at a time. The expected area of the building is 400 m².3.02Republic of Lithuania, Vilnius AirportIn progress2012-2013
10. Reconstruction of the runway (RWY) and the signal lighting systemVilnius International Airport launches the design works for reconstruction of the runway (RWY) and signal lighting system. The current RWY was built in 1961. It has been extended, widened, reconstructed and modernised for a number of times over its lifetime. The pavement and foundations of the airport’s runway are considerably worn out; the last partial reconstruction of the RWY pavement was carried out in 2003–2004. The useful life of the RWY after reconstruction depends on the project solutions, intensity of its use, maintenance and other aspects. The average useful life of the asphalt concrete pavement after reconstruction is approximately 7 years. It is projected to upgrade the entire asphalt concrete pavement of the RWY; the expected scope of works will cover around 157,000 m².28.9Vilnius International Airport To be implemented2015
