Silakot Airport has 2 dumbbells each on runway end 04/22 though this additional dumbbell might be needed after taxiway 'A' as most traffic approach runway 04 so they can backtrack early rather then going end of runway and backtrack using runway 22 dumbbell which takes lot of time and extra fuel consumption.

btw, rapid exit taxiway will require a proper taxiway parallel to runway whereas Sialkot airport has no plan for taxiway yet so where they want the traffic to vacate runway using rapid exit taxiway?

I think before the end of runway on one side a dumbbell will be constructed to allow the aircraft to turnaround & backtrack before the end of the runway.

And, before the end of runway on other side a rapid exit taxiway will be built to allow the aircraft to leave the runway before the end of the runway.

So, a dumbbell before the end of runway on one side and a rapid exit taxiway before the end of runway on the other side.

Last month, while waiting in the lounge, i saw Air Arabia A320 landing Runway 04 able to exit via Taxiway with no backtracking although it is short distance.
