Roads Around the Runway

Why are these roads always around a runway, and why do they sometimes have buildings?

When I was doing my stage in Geneva airport, I have the opportunity to be on the runway and on the entire Tarmac.

So I could tell you ! It’s normally used by the “Animal Cars” in Geneva we call it PPA, it’s some people that they have to check constantly if there is some birds or other animals, so they used this routes.

There is also the police, when there is a president or someone very important, the police have to check if there is an intrusion or something like that.
