      The locations of rapid exit taxiways along a runway are based on several criteria described in the ICAO Aerodrome Design Manual, Part 2, in addition to different speed criteria. The radius of the fillet on the inside of the curve at a rapid exit taxiway shall be sufficient to provide a widened taxiway throat in order to facilitate early. On precision instrument runways, the edge-lighting becomes amber in the last 2, ft ( m) of the runway, or last third of the runway, whichever is less. Taxiways are differentiated by being bordered by blue lights, or by having green centre lights, depending on the width of .

Taxiway edge markings are present whenever there is a need to separate the taxiway from a pavement that is not intended for aircraft use or to delineate the edge of the taxiway.

Taxiways may also have shoulder markings and holding position markings for Instrument Landing System/Microwave Landing System (ILS/MLS) critical areas, and taxiway.

landing aircraft to determine the location of downstream exit taxiways). Lights on the array were designed with the ability to illuminate in a variety of configurations with variations in light length (point lighting, 2 foot, 8 foot, and 16 foot length), spacing (50 foot, foot spacing between lights), turn angle.

Taxiway design Turning Radius where R is the radius of curve in m, V is ther speed in kmph and f is the coefficint of friction between the tyre and pavement surface the value of f may be assumed as For airport serving large subsonic jet transports, minimum value of redius of curvature is m whatever be the speed.

Exit Path Markings Photoluminescent exit path markings provide additional guidance in the event of emergency. With the addition of photoluminescent stair markers, stair treads, and safety tape to standard exit signs and emergency lights, stairwells, handrails, and passageways become much easier to.
