Let's say you are taxiing along toward your departure runway, and you notice another aircraft approaching the taxiway intersection
from your left at a good clip.
The ERGL Provides 24-Hour unidirectional marking for runway and taxiway intersections
with 45 - 50 alternating yellow flashes per minute located at the hold position.

The project involves the widening of the runway from 150 to 200 feet, milling six inches of existing runway asphalt and overlaying with 18 inches of concrete, widening taxiway intersections
and creating greater taxiway access to enable more efficient aircraft movements, installing new runway lighting and electrical infrastructure and installing new electrical feeder systems and accommodations for future navigational aids.
The airport's runways can take the weight of the new plane but adjustments - such as widening taxiway intersections
- have to be made to allow pilots to manoeuvre safely.
The computerised system determines when the runway is in use and illuminates red lights embedded in the tarmac at vital taxiway intersections
to hold crossing traffic.
But factor in taxiway intersections
, less-than-stellar signage and the frequent need to back-taxi because the taxiway pavement doesn't run all the way to the runway's end and you may have to do some extra planning.
