Unforeseen repair required on Mitchell Aerodrome

​It is anticipated that the system will be fully operational in a few weeks, once the part is fixed and returned to Council for installation.

Deputy Mayor Jan Chambers said Council thanks the local tradespeople who identified the part where the fault was occurring.

“This meant that only one part of the system had to be returned for repair, instead of the whole unit (hopefully taking less time to fix),” Cr Chambers said.

“Council apologises for the inconvenience while the lighting system is only manually operational and thanks residents and pilots for their patience while the repairs take place.”​
