Edinburgh Airport promises £20m transport upgrade
October 25 2019
A £20m transport upgrade for Edinburgh Airport has been confirmed to provide improved interchange experience for passengers as part of an ongoing expansion plan.
Work is expected to start on site of the new East Terminus from next summer to house a relocated taxi rank which will move from its present location at the base of a multi-storey car park to provide improved tram access.
The new layout also aims to reduce congestion by enabling taxis to bypass congestion on Eastfield Road by using a dedicated road over the old runway. A second phase of development will create a permanent dedicated access road.
Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “As well as making it easier for licensed taxis to drop off and pick up passengers, this multi-million-pound project will also see the construction of a new access road, helping to ease the congestion we currently see on Eastfield Road at peak times.”
Additional benefits include new covered walkways, a passenger bridge, waiting areas and self-service kiosks for taxi hire.
