Luton Airport plans Olympics terminal road access boost

Luton Airport is to spend £4m to improve an access road to ease traffic delays and prepare for an influx of spectators for the 2012 Olympics.

Two new traffic lanes are to be built south of Airport Way through an existing underpass leading directly into a newly created set down point.

Plans have been submitted to Luton Borough Council for approval.

"The planned enhancements will relieve congestion en route to the airport," managing director Glyn Jones said.

It is hoped the work will be finished by mid June.
