New Entry to Moree Regional Airport
After months of construction work at the Moree Gateway, the public now have access to the Moree Regional Airport via a new street, Airport Drive, which is accessed from the roundabout on Blueberry Road, off the Newell Highway, south of Moree.
The Moree Regional Airport car parking area was upgraded as part of the Moree Gateway project and the final improvements are being staged to allow direct public access from the car parking area to the airport terminal.
Council will continue with works in front of the airport terminal which may mean pedestrian traffic is diverted in the coming weeks.
The former road to the airport from the Newell Highway will be closed in May and a gate with directional signage to Airport Drive will be installed. Only authorised personnel will be permitted to enter the airport via the old road.
Council will conduct a community awareness campaign informing the Moree Plains community, travellers and air service patrons of the new route to the Moree Regional Airport along Airport Drive, Moree.
