Facilities at RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland are being upgraded as part of investments costing more than £400 million altogether. The Moray base is home to four Typhoon fighter jet squadrons, a new fleet of Poseidon Maritime Patrol aircraft, IX (Bomber) Squadron and an RAF regiment squadron.

Runway Upgrades

Work to resurface two runways has been carried out as part of a £75million upgrade, while the intersection between them has been stripped, strengthened and resurfaced. The refurbishment began in late 2019, as part of a contract awarded to VolkerFitzpatrick Ltd by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.
