Melbourne Airport’s new air traffic control tower was officially opened by Deputy Prime Minister and Infrastructure Minister Warren Truss and Airservices chairman Angus Houston on Friday.

The 75 metre tall tower was built at a cost of $19 million tower. Operational since November, it is the fourth new Airservices tower to feature INTAS – Integrated Tower Automation Suite – technology that combines flight and operational data, surveillance and voice communications.

“The design and location of the new tower takes into account existing and future development at the airport and enhances our capability, ensuring that we are well placed to meet anticipated growth into the future,” Airservices CEO Margaret Staib said.

    a similar one in adelaide has no exhaust fans in the toilets – and nothing to cook with in the kitchen in case it catches fire! Really useful, both those ideas.
