Our airstrip lights run on a pilot activation system called PAALC consisting of:
- 27 white lights along the edge of the runway
- 18 blue LED lights around the taxiway and apron
- 2 yellow lights at the taxiway hold point to runway
- 4 green lights at outer thresholds of runway
- 8 green/red lights at thresholds of the runway
- an illuminated wind direction indicator and apron flood lights.
Under normal conditions the system is pilot activated by 3 long mike clicks on frequency 120.60MZ. The PAALC will then activate the runway lights, apron flood lighting and the windsock for 30 minutes, the PAALC will also transmit confimation that the lighting system is active or failed. During the last 10 minutes the windsock lights will flash until the PAALC switches the lights off, the lighting cycle can be restarted at any time by repeating the initial process of keying the mike 3 times on frequency 119.6MZ.

Gascoyne Junction is the northern gateway to natural tourist sites, such as Mount Augustus National Park, the Kennedy Ranges and inland Gascoyne and the new Bridge has the potential to increase visitors to Gascoyne Junction and the Kennedy Range.”
The name of the bridge was determined through a Shire community consultation process which saw 18 names put forward for consideration by the Shire of Upper Gascoyne. The chosen name – Killili – is the local Aboriginal word meaning bulrushes and was the original name for Gascoyne Junction until the late 1930’s.
