Work starts on Bristol Airport extension

18 de junio de 2009.
Work on a two-storey multi-million pound walkway at Bristol Airport, UK, began last week. The 400m extension, which will include facilities for passengers with reduced mobility, will provide eight departure lounges and also house offices for the airport and airport based companies.

Bristol Airport’s head of development, Andrew Goodenough, said, ‘The western walkway will provide an improved experience for customers using the airport, providing direct covered access between aircraft and the terminal. Currently half the airports passengers use the buses to ferry them from the waiting area to the plane.”
The lead contracting company, Kier Western, aims to complete the project by March next year. The airport will soon submit a planning application for the further development and enhancement of the airport to North Somerset Council.
