Before the commencement of any substantial work on the manoeuvring area, liaison comprising of representatives of the airport operations, engineering and maintenance departments, ATNS and the contractor's agents should be established. The group will meet as often as is considered necessary to review progress and in order to establish the need for any change in working practices to meet with operational requirements and/or demands. To review safe work practices.

All major work areas will be adequately fenced dependant on location to demarcate the worksite boundary, provide supports for lighting, blast protection and ensures site security where necessary; Any of the following standard fences might be considered for use around works areas: • Type 1 – Chestnut paling fencing; • Type 2 – Chestnut paling and barrel fencing; • Type 3 – Anti-blast fencing; • Type 4 – Cones and flutter tape; • Type 5 – Post and flutter tape; • Type 6 – Chain link fencing; • Type 7 - Chain link and barrels; • Type 8 – Richmark lindpet barrier. Other equivalent, or better fences, might be considered by Airport Management and may be regarded as sufficient. Temporary landside/airside barrier fences will also meet the requirements of the CAA – Airport Security Department and will not be less stringent than the ICAO guidelines contained in ICAO Annex 17.

Lighting: 2.9.5.1 2.9.5.2

During night operations, work areas obstructing part of the movement area will be properly lit. Red lights shall be used and be of a sufficient intensity as to ensure conspicuousness considering the levels of adjacent lights.

Revision 4.0 – April 2012

2.9.5.3

They shall be placed at a maximum separation of 7.5 meters along the outside of the fence and ideally shall be at a height of at least 1 meter. Where fences cross taxiway centrelines, not less than 8 lights at 3 metre intervals will be placed. Where work areas are to be active during the hours of darkness with the movement area in use by aircraft, onsite illumination will not prove intrusive to pilots of nearby aircraft. If a lit taxiway centreline has to be relocated due to the presence of a work area, the green lights will be suppressed either by switching or capping each individual light unit, and a temporary alternative route provided enhanced by stimsonite type green reflectors. Adequate marking or lighting will be provided on cranes at maximum height of operation to provide extra conspicuousness, if considered necessary. If work is for prolonged duration, frequent inspections will be carried out to ensure that the marking and lighting of obstructions does not degrade below acceptable limits.

Care will be taken to ensure that taxiway routes that could lead an aircraft to a works area are properly closed with markings and the existing lights are covered or removed. If a work area constricts a taxiway, clearance will be recalculated. The taxiway needs to be restricted to only certain types of aircraft, and A NOTAM will be issued advising of the temporary restrictions.

Information indicated in the AIP. Licensing and safeguarding. ICAO Type 'A' Charts. Precision Approach Terrain Charts. Calculation of "Dominant Obstacle" Information for NonPrecision Approach Procedures.

2.19.2 Monitoring of obstacles: General: - Once an obstacle has been identified, either within the aerodrome boundary or in its vicinity, its significance is assessed in relation to the defined obstacle limitation surfaces. All surfaces will be kept free from obstacles but in practical terms some may have to be allowed and appropriate safety measures taken, in negotiation with the relevant CAA departments. An obstacle will be assessed on the following basis: 2.19.2.1 Identify the nature and ownership of the obstacle. 2.19.2.2 Its location in relation to the origin of the safeguarded surfaces is inspected. 2.19.2.3 Check the amount by which the surface may be infringed and gradient presented by the obstacle to the surface origin. 2.19.2.4 Check if an existing immovable obstacle provides any shielding. 2.19.2.5 The volume and type of air traffic at the aerodrome will be considered in determining the significance of an obstacle. 2.19.2.6 The approach procedure for the aerodrome is published in the Aeronautical Publication (AIP). 2.19.3 Lighting & Marking of Obstacles: General: Permanent obstacles which are close to or infringing the Air to Ground to Air (AGA) safeguarded surfaces are fitted with a pair or pairs of RED obstacle lights unless deemed to be shielded by another obstacle or if it is sufficiently conspicuous. All possible infringements are conveyed to the CAA. 2.19.3.1 Temporary objects which are close to or infringing the AGA, safeguarded surfaces are prominently marked if only present by day, or fitted with a pair or pairs of RED obstacle lights if also present during night or low visibility operations as per CAA requirements. 2.19.3.2 Provision and checking of the marking and lighting of Offairport obstacles is determined and implemented between the aerodrome licensee and the owners or operators of the obstacle. 2.19.3.3 The airport operations maintenance department regularly checks the marking and lighting of obstacles.

2.20 MONITORING OF BUILDING DEVELOPMENTS General: -

The same procedures as prescribed above will also apply for the monitoring of any building obstruction. In this regard the following lighting and marking procedures will be applied: -

2.20.1 As airports have no legal powers to remove obstacles of the above nature outside of the airport boundary, the removal of the obstacle will be negotiated between the landowner concerned and the appropriate local authority. 2.20.2 Such obstacles will be reported to the CAA for intervention if negotiations are not successful.

2.21 OBSTACLE REPORTING PROCEDURES General: -

2.21.1 2.21.2 2.21.3 2.21.3 2.22

If an obstacle is to remain, the following reporting and safety procedures will be followed: Notification in the AIP. Via NOTAM or AIRAC cycle Marking and/or lighting of the obstacle. Variation of the runway declared distances available. Limitation of the runway to visual operations restrictions on the type or amount of traffic.

DISABLED AIRCRAFT REMOVAL General: 2.22.1

The Accident investigation Section of the South African Civil Aviation Authority will be notified immediately of an accident as defined in the Regulations Regarding the Investigation of Aircraft Accidents, 1973. Responsibility for initial notification is delegated to the ATC; and followed up by the airport Authority. In accordance with the Civil Aviation Regulations, the responsibility to remove a disabled aircraft remains that of the aircraft operator; however the Airport Authority has the mandate to remove such stricken aircraft if the airline operator cannot perform this function. In accordance with agreements with institutions capable of performing this task, the Airport Authority will; after CAA approval is obtained, move a disabled aircraft that constitutes an obstruction to the public or to air navigation. 2.22.3.1 Removal of such by the Airport Authority will result in:2.22.3.1.1 Removal by contracting agency.
