Edinburgh Airport gets steel-coated bollards
Fri, 12 Mar, 2010
Steel-coated bollards are being installed in front of Edinburgh Airport's terminal as part of refurbishment work being carried out on the exterior of the building.
The measures are being taken to boost security at the hub, while it is hoped that the rest of the revamp will also improve its appearance.
It will take until half way through June before the work is finished and no traffic will be allowed to stop in front of the terminal during this time period.
The base's managing director Gordon Dewar commented: "I'd like to thank passengers in advance for their patience whilst we upgrade this important part of Edinburgh Airport."
Also included in the improvements to the forecourt area is the resurfacing of its bus lane.
A total of nine million passengers travel through Edinburgh Airport every year and the 24-hour site runs an average of 311 flights a day, servicing more than 100 destinations.
