Occasionally procedures may have to be modified due to work on the aircraft movement area or for operational reasons. Operators should be aware that a NOTAM and/or Airside Operations Advice may include such temporary conditions, potentially restricting the use of a Taxiway (including a Towbar Disconnect Point within) and/or a Parking Position.
