Lukashenko urges to use local resources to build second runway in Minsk airport

DZERZHINSK DISTRICT, 22 December (BelTA) – The second runway in the Minsk National Airport can be built by Belarusian construction and contracting organizations, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at the opening ceremony of the second Minsk ring road (MKAD-2) on 22 December, BelTA has learned.

One of the participants of the meeting of the road builders and contractors with the head of state said that Belarusian builders should be involved in the construction works at the airport. Alexander Lukashenko supported the idea and expressed confidence that Belarusian organizations will do a good job.

“We must build the second runway. If you are ready to start, negotiate the terms of the construction contract, but we must build the runway,” the President stressed. “What is the problem? As far as I know, the layer is thicker than 40cm, it is about 80cm. Let it be 1m thick. Can we lay concrete? Yes, we can. Moreover, you have said about it. It means that you are ready to build this runway.”
