MANTP Update #113 dated 18th October 2019 courtesy of the MANTP Team to whom full credit is given.
















It's good to see Taxiway Juliet being constructed - this is the new Juliet that will replace the current taxiway of that name at the end of December when a major taxiway re-designation is done.

Thanks again for the update @Scottie Dog.
So we will see the grassed areas opposite T2 eventually disappear in stages to form taxiway Juliet?

Another question, when are the works planned for completion that are taking place opposite the hangers? Or around the area of stands 100/101?

LS@MAN - sorry for delays in replying to your questions. I'm currently multitasking - what retirees don't - and just on my mobile. I'll do some digging later today and let you know what I find (if anything) when I'm back on the laptop.

Here is a possible answer to your question - please bear in mind that the document goes back to May 2018 or earlier.


You will see that the work on Taxiway Echo (areas D5a & D5b) was scheduled to be finished by 27th November 2019 however OAN 104/2019 shows work until 20th December 2019 and I feel that it will be possibly February before the taxiway actually opens.

Taxiway Juliet runs across the grassed area and so, at this time will not need the entire grass island to be removed, however as time go on it will all end up under concrete. You will see Taxiway Juliet as D4a which should have started in mid-September and be finished by early March 2020 - this however seems to be about a month behind schedule. Also the infills to the grass in D4b have not even started and that was originally planned for May to December of this year.

Hopefully I have answered some of your questions.

The next AIRAC Update (13/2019) which is due for implementation on 5th December has the new charts shown below:

I appreciate that this covers areas outside of the immediate MANTP discussion, however I believe that 'the part' becomes 'the whole'.

Firstly let's start at the 23R holding point - The old holding bay at J2-J1 is now shown as disused, presumably due to the TUI 737-MAX aircraft be parked there.

At the present time the southside taxiways are unaffected by the changes.

Coming down runway 23R Taxiway D is now renamed P and this renaming continues up through the old 'East Link' - for those of us old enough to recall that name.

The new Taxiway D runs from north from its junction with Taxiway B and through to opposite the old Stand 100 where it now is temporarily ended.

New Taxiway E replaces NA through the West Apron whilst Taxiway NC is introduced around the end of Pier C and then up the front of Terminal 2.

I believe that this summary pretty well covers these initial changes, however more will happen later in 2020.

I've just spotted an item that I somehow overlooked in my previous comments and observations.

The Pier 2 remote stands that have previously raised discussion, as they were a mix of 200 & 900 sequences, have suddenly been remembered in the 800 series!!

So much happens without our even noticing it - reminder to myself, read the small print.

I had noticed the change but took no notice in view of the fact that they have changed before seemingly without logic on the sequence.

What concerned me more was the fact that no account has being taken of Taxiway Juliet construction. This along with the fact that apart from your updates which as always are most appreciated MAG/MAN have said very little on the TP since the TCX collapse and I am coming concerned that the TP is being slowed if not scaled back as a result

Why on earth would they want to do that when just about all the slots have been taken over by Jet2 and TUI have large plans, it may cause them to have a look again at stand layout as both TUI and Jet2 are on T2

Comet - you say that you are concerned that no account has been made of Taxiway Juliet construction however, if you look carefully, you will see that Stand 82 has suddenly appears to have had its markings extended through the grass area. Looking at the photos in the MANTP Updates it looks as if, at present, the work on Juliet is able to be done without any stand closures.

Just to try to clarify a couple of points that people might have missed from earlier posts with regards to the timescale for the project.

Firstly here is a screenshot that I did back on 7th May 2018 and where you can see that work on Taxiway Juliet itself was only due to have started in mid-September of this year, although work on the . I fully accept that certain work has been running late, and indeed I would say 6 months behind schedule, however this was well before the sad demise of TCX.





The second screenshot is of a timeline that I made using the dates from the first image and which puts the original dates for work into better perspective. I'm just in the throws of trying to go back through all of this year's OANs to be able to update the timescale and show the actual position.





I hope this helps. - clicking on the images will give a much clearer picture.

Read on a standsted forum new scanners will be installed there as part of the new security area, as in the scanners you can use 1 tray with and don't require any liquids or electronic items being removed...hope MAG will also invest in these at MAN...

I had an email today which says that T2X will be opened in phases starting from next July. First elements are likely to be security, departure lounges, with restaurants and shops, and immigration.

Final sections, including check-in will open later in the year.
