RESA Phase 2

In 2016, YVR began looking at options to build Runway End Safety Areas on the North Runway. YVR is now consulting on selected options to accommodate RESAs on the North Runway.

This multi-year project will see RESA Phase 2 construction take place each summer from 2018 to 2020.

As part of early design work on Phase 2, we applied the community feedback and identified and analyzed several possible RESA options.

You can find out more about our process in our RESA Phase 2 Discussion Guide below.
