The first plane has landed on part of the new concrete runway being built on Platte Island. On Friday 26th May, 2017, IDC’s Y12-009, carrying members of the National Assembly’s Select Committee on Islands, arrived on Platte from Coetivy as part of the committee’s fact finding mission on different islands. To date, concrete laying work has been completed on almost half of the 1020m runway - before that Platte Island had a grass runway, but with the construction of Platte Hotel, this had to be upgraded. Concrete laying work on the runway is being done by IDC and is expected to be complete by the 15th August. The construction of the 50-60 room hotel on Platte Island is expected to start at the beginning of next year.
