Luton Airport Gets Ready for Continued Growth
As one of London’s international airports and the fifth busiest airport in the UK, it is essential that Luton airport stays up to speed. A busy base for EasyJet and other airlines, London Luton airport also boasts being Britain’s most popular for private jets.
More Room for Manoeuvre
Thanks to higher than anticipated passenger growth, Luton airport needed to increase the infrastructure by building new taxiway route, Bravo, leading onto the 08 end of the main runway. This will contribute to maximising more airfield movements, and helping to accommodating the expected 18 million passengers per annum by 2020.
How We Helped
In order to ensure safe movement around the airfield, newly designed taxiway lighting equipment from the IR range of LED fixtures were installed along with other electrical solutions which included:
- New Airfield ground lighting cabling and associated equipment’s
- Smartcontrol modification and upgrades in both the individual substations
- power supplies infrastructure to new atg CCRs
- Stop bar and taxiway centreline from the IR range of LED fixtures
- LED taxiway signage
- LED wig wags
Our team accommodated the airports required to minimise disruption by completing the second phase of the project over 20 consecutive night shifts.
Safely Lit and Ready to Grow
Luton airport is now safely lit and has more space to service its growing passenger numbers. And with plans to improve surface connections by building a new rail link between the airport’s Parkway station and the terminal, Luton looks set to continue flying high.
We are proud to have played such a vital part in the successful expansion of an increasingly key UK airport.
