Jersey air traffic control tower nearly complete

Jersey Airport air traffic control tower
The tower is due to become fully operational by spring 2010

Jersey's new air traffic control tower is nearly finished, the island's airport has said.

Operations Director Sandy Sawyer said air traffic controllers would begin receiving training on new equipment in the next few weeks.

She said the tower took just over a year to build and six months to fit out and came in under budget at £11.7m.

Ms Sawyer said: "It's a building to be really proud of and I think Jersey Airport is justifiably very proud."

The tower is due to become fully operational by the spring.
