Airport reaction to AWPR announcement

Further to the announcement this morning confirming progress on the airport link road section of the AWPR, Airport MD Carol Benzie welcomed the announcement.

She said: “Since the legal challenge against the AWPR was lifted, we have made it a priority to make clear the importance of this link road at the airport. It is hard to overstate the difference that this will make to local congestion issues in what is a thriving and fast-developing part of the city.  

“Whilst we realise it is still some time away, and congestion could get worse before it gets better, I am delighted to be more certain now that things will improve and to see light at the end of the tunnel.   

“Our next steps will be to meet with the Transport Minister in the coming months in order to understand the wider scope of the project and how our important section fits into the overall picture.”
