Aena has today informed the Bilbao Airport Environmental Monitoring Commission of the progress made in relation to the implementation of the Bizkaia airport’s Sound Insulation Plan.  Among the new developments is the completion of work carried out on 480 homes, bringing the total number of properties soundproofed to date under this plan to 2,202, which will foreseeably be joined in the near future by the 173 that are already undergoing their corresponding soundproofing work.  It has also been reported on the momentum produced in relation to the implementation of this plan, once neighbours interested in this procedure have submitted their applications for soundproofing, thus allowing the inclusion of 17 homes in this plan. A further six applications are awaiting completion of the necessary documentation to prove that they meet the criteria.

 

Given that dwellings do not necessarily have to have identical conditions in terms of sound insulation, the plan carries out acoustic measurements with which to specify the different soundproofing actions to be carried out in the dwellings, all with the aim of ensuring that the interior of the dwellings meets the acoustic quality objectives. It is precisely these acoustic tests and the calculations carried out that have allowed the need for this type of work to be carried out in 143 dwellings, which has led to the drafting and preparation of the corresponding projects and budgets. Their execution will be carried out by the companies awarded the contract by Aena.

 

This process is supported by the approval by Aena of new actions, which on this occasion are aimed at soundproofing a total of 147 dwellings. These actions will begin in the near future, so that at the next meeting of this Commission, it will be possible to verify that they have been properly completed. In this context, Aena offers interested residents the Acoustic Insulation Plan Management Office, which can be contacted by telephone at 91.590.31.70 or by e-mail at  to resolve any queries they may have. oficina.paa@ineco.com to resolve any doubts they may have regarding this plan.

 

The Bilbao Airport Environmental Monitoring Commission, made up of representatives of the municipalities of Derio, Erandio, Loiu, Sondika and Zamudio, the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, the Government Delegation in the Basque Country, the Basque Government, the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, and Aena, has agreed to hold a new meeting as soon as progress is made in the execution of this plan.
