Southampton gets footbridge

SOUTHAMPTON AIRPORT, owned by BAA, is finally to gain a footbridge over the adjoining railway line, part of a £7m redevelopment of the terminal building.  AERBT has campaigned vigorously for this important introduction, the existing Southampton Parkway Station pedestrian bridge located at the wrong end of the platform, alienating passengers with heavy luggage, and those just about to miss their train.  A lift is included in the project.  Other improvements at the airport over the next 12 months include the introduction of the R J Mitchell restaurant, named after the man who designed the legendary Spitfire, which made its maiden flight from the then Eastleigh Aerodrome on 6 March 1936. www.southamptonairport.com
