Stansted £600m upgrade

Plans are about to be unveiled for a £600m long-term upgrade of the terminal infrastructure at Stansted Airport.

Manchester Airports Group, which owns Stansted, is hosting a suppliers day next month for large contractors in the construction industry turning over more than £100m.

The planned programme of improvements includes expansion of the arrivals area, additional car park capacity and modifications to the existing departures, landside and airside infrastructures.

Industry insiders say the latest plans signal a forthcoming boom in airport construction work.

MAG is already planning a major £1bn expansion of Manchester Airport, while Luton Airport is about to start its own £100m terminal upgrade. This includes plans to build a £200m light rail link to make journeys easier to and from London.

Gatwick and Heathrow airports are also both planning major investments, the scale of which depends on the government’s decision later this year on a third Heathrow runway.

For the Stansted improvement plan, MAG is seeking expressions of interest from potential constructors and design-and-build partners to discuss the proposed programme of work and any associated opportunities.   www.stanstedairport.com
