RESA Phase 1
In 2014, YVR consulted with the public and key stakeholders on Phase 1 of the Runway End Safety Area (RESA) project which included the design and construction of 300 metre RESAs on both ends of the South and Crosswind Runways. Construction on the South Airfield RESAs began in the summer of 2015 and will be completed by the end of 2017.
Construction of RESAs on the south and crosswind runways began in the summer of 2015 and will continue through the 2017 summer season.
