Bristol Airport (BRS) has partnered with civil engineering specialist, Griffiths, to deliver a brand-new public transport hub.

The largest capital project the airport has seen to date, this 60 million GBP investment will create an enlarged public transport interchange hub, an improved internal road system and an additional multi-storey car park featuring enhanced customer waiting rooms, bathrooms and rest facilities.

The project forms part of Bristol Airport’s overall multi-million-pound transformational development plan enabling 12 million passengers a year to use the Airport

Initial work on the project began in May, with progress currently underway on the construction of a new access ramp to the airport’s existing car parks.

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. We will continue to keep customers informed of the changes via directional signage, customer messaging on car park bookings, the website and on social media.

The new hub will provide access for coaches, buses and other forms of public transport, as well as double the existing public transport bay capacity to 16, making BRS one of the region’s largest bus and coach interchanges.

The top level of the car park will include a dedicated Drop-Off and Pick-up area, with over 2000 parking spaces expected to be provided throughout the new development.

Glenn Gilmore, Griffiths Farrans JV, said:

We are looking forward to getting started with this exciting project which will play a significant role in the step change of Bristol Airport as it elevates its offering to support new air links and increase inbound tourism. The vision for the future is one with sustainability, safety and enhanced customer experiences at the heart of it. Griffiths Farrans JV has extensive experience within the aviation sector providing intelligent construction and civil engineering solutions across the UK.

Throughout this project we will be engaging on a calendar of social value activities which will maximise our use of local supply chain, create apprenticeships and employment opportunities as well as engage with colleges, schools and the voluntary and community sector to leave a positive lasting legacy in the area.
