Luton Airport update

Whilst technically not part of the £100m transformation of Luton Airport now getting underway, the motorway extension from J10/M1 to the existing Airport Way dual carriageway is now useable, eliminating the notorious roundabout at the London Road (A1081). 

There may be some delays whilst the work is finally completed but 24 April has been set for the contractors to hand over the road to the local council. 

Drivers coming from the south up the M1 should note that the problems associated with traffic joining the motorway extension from the north have not been entirely eliminated and should treat the high level junction with care.

Passengers will soon notice the start of the airport improvements with the opening of a temporary arrivals hall.  The current roadway forecourt will be filled in and turned into a much larger security zone on the ground floor, releasing the existing mezzanine search facility for commercial use.

Work has started on creating a dual carriageway from the Holiday Inn roundabout to the terminal area. 

Luton Airport says that a £1m budget has been set aside for a new executive lounge, an exceptional facility according to Marketing Manager Oliver Jaycock.  “We only want the best for London Luton,” he said.  www.london-luton.co.uk
