Road delays at Gatwick

Fri, 25 Jan, 2008

Passengers driving to London Gatwick Airport's North Terminal have been advised to allow extra time for their journeys in the coming weeks.

Construction work on a section of the northern perimeter road is set to begin on Monday January 28th and is scheduled to last for ten weeks

A statement from the airport advised: "During this time passengers using the Summer Special and North Terminal Flight Path long stay car parks can expect some delays to their journey."

The airport's operator BAA said the work was part of its long-term investment in upgrading Gatwick's infrastructure.

Once passengers manage to negotiate the hold-ups they may well find it difficult to find a space in the airport parking facilities unless they have booked ahead.

A recent report showed London Gatwick Airport continues to get busier and that almost 2.5 million people travelled through it in December - an increase of 2.7 per cent from the corresponding period in 2006.
