3.5 Runway end safety areasGeneral3.5.1 A runway end safety area shall be provided at each end of a runway strip where:— the code number is 3 or 4; and— the code number is 1 or 2 and the runway is an instrument one.Note.— Guidance on runway end safety areas is given in Attachment A, Section 9.Dimensions of runway end safety areas3.5.2 A runway end safety area shall extend from the end of a runway strip to a distance of at least 90 m.3.5.3 Recommendation.— A runway end safety area should, as far as practicable, extend from the end of a runway strip to a distance of at least:— 240 m where the code number is 3 or 4; and— 120 m where the code number is 1 or 2.3.5.4 The width of a runway end safety area shall be at least twice that of the associated runway.3.5.5 Recommendation.— The width of a runway end safety area should, wherever practicable, be equal to that of the graded portion of the associated runway strip.Objects on runway end safety areasNote.— See 9.9 for information regarding sitting of equipment and installations on runway end safety areas.3.5.6 Recommendation.— An object situated on a runway end safety area which may endanger aeroplanes should be regarded as an obstacle and should, as far as practicable, be removed.Clearing and grading of runway end safety areas3.5.7 Recommendation.— A runway end safety area should provide a cleared and graded area for aeroplanes which the runway is intended to serve in the event of an aeroplane undershooting or overrunning the runway.Note.— The surface of the ground in the runway end safety area does not need to be prepared to the same quality as the runway strip. See, however, 3.5.11.Slopes on runway end safety areas3.5.8 GeneralRecommendation.— The slopes of a runway end safety area should be such that no part of the runway end safety area penetrates the approach or take-off climb surface.3.5.9 Longitudinal slopesRecommendation.— The longitudinal slopes of a runway end safety area should not exceed a downward slope of 5 per cent. Longitudinal slope changes should be as gradual as practicable and abrupt changes or sudden reversals of slopes avoided.3.5.10 Transverse slopesRecommendation.— The transverse slopes of a runway end safety area should not exceed an upward or downward slope of 5 per cent. Transitions between differing slopes should be as gradual as practicable.Strength of runway end safety areas3.5.11 Recommendation.— A runway end safety area should be so prepared or constructed as to reduce the risk of damage to an aeroplane undershooting or overrunning the runway, enhance aeroplane deceleration and facilitate the movement of rescue and fire fighting vehicles as required in 9.2.30 to 9.2.32.Note.— Guidance on the strength of a runway end safety area is given in the Aerodrome Design Manual (Doc 9157), Part 1.2.
