Bristol Airport to Construct New Public Transport Interchange Hub

Bristol Airport (BRS) is investing 60 million GBP in constructing a new public transport interchange hub and multi-storey car park.

As the airport’s largest capital project to date, this transformation aims to enhance services and accessibility for arriving and departing passengers at BRS.

The investment will provide a significantly larger public transport interchange hub, alongside an improved internal road system and an additional multi-storey car park with waiting rooms and rest facilities.

The public transport interchange hub will serve coaches, buses and other forms of public transport. Notably, it will more than double the number of bus/coach bays to 16 bays compared to the existing six.

Meanwhile, the new multi-storey car park will provide over 2000 spaces and will adjoin with the existing multi-storey car park. A new glazed pedestrian bridge will also be constructed to provide a direct connection to the terminal.

Dave Lees, CEO, Bristol Airport, said:

“This project is transformational for our customers. It is the largest single capital investment project
since the terminal opened in 2000 and will take 18 months to complete. As with all large-scale projects, they are complex and the development work will need to be phased to accommodate the
normal day-to-day Airport operations. During the project, customers will see several temporary changes taking place, including temporary relocation of some car parks and changes to internal
roads layouts.”

This work is part of Bristol Airport’s initiative to enable 12 million annual passengers to use the airport.

The development is expected to create thousands of new jobs while supporting inbound tourism.
