Planners give go-ahead for Manchester Airport’s £1bn transformation
Planning consent was granted yesterday for Manchester Airport’s £1bn transformation programme.
The proposals had been unveiled last summer. The 10-year programme is a series of 60 enhancements including the expansion and reconfiguring of Terminal 2, to become the airport’s primary terminal building. Terminal 3 will be improved to cater for increased demand and an expanding flight schedule. There will also be new and enlarged airside transfer facilities, including the direct link between Terminals 2 and 3.
Galliford Try, Carillion and BAM Construction are the framework contractors for the airport’s capital delivery framework. Jacobs was appointed last month to provide engineering services for the transformation programme (link opens in new tab) and Arcadis was appointed project manager in December.
Among the other developments will be a US ‘pre-clearance’ facility, allowing passengers to clear immigration, customs, and agricultural inspection before boarding their flight. There will also be new stands and piers and improvements to the road system serving the airport.
The programme is being phased to minimise disruption; all the improvements will take place within the existing footprint.
