Are Roadways and Related Structures a Detriment to Safety in the Airport Environment?
Some airports have roadways that transverse approach areas. Are the roadways contributing to the non survivability of a crash through the use of extreme cross sections and structures that are not truly break-a-way if impacted by an aircraft. Do light fixtures, sign posts, culverts, etc. significantly reduce the survivability of a crash. Will the roadway section that usually includes ditches and other drainage structures provide a negative environment?
