Well they have expensive new fire engines down there now so maybe they need a runway to justify the cost 

Well, we might as well have a new runway so they can roll the new fire engine over and baptise it!

You do recall a worker was killed out there in a similar incident a few years ago.

Yes an electrician and a fire engine playing chicken with each other if I recall correctly.

The bulk of the expenditure is for:

1) Resurfacing of runway 03/21 - good - it needs it, preferably grooved too for wet weather performance reasons.

2) Widening of starter strips to match the width of the main runway - complete waste of money as not needed to allow aircraft to operate.

What commercial flights will use it though?. I know the Q400 could but I do not recall the ATR's of Stobart ever doing so and I presume anything Easyjet have could not.

ATRs can use 21 it - depends on the Company policy. Stobart used it for take off regularly, think they had a company restriction for landings though- not sure. If it was blowing a hoolie out of the south, I'd expect EZY could use it for take off too.

This is the most recent masterplan as I understood it...

That work of fiction was submitted by the Deputy Airport Director to National Air Traffic Services a couple of years ago when they were asked to complete a technical report about the Airport's Instrument landing facilities. It's quite frankly an insight into the complete delusional view of what we need to service our needs and has, as I understand it, been kicked into the long grass by the powers that be.
