USA's Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) announced (21-Sep-09) the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners has approved environmental impact and compliance reports for the reconfiguration of the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT). The Bradley West Project is one of the improvements included in the LAX Master Plan. The project calls for:

  • New concourses to replace existing ones;
  • Addition of nine gates to the west side of the terminal to supplement existing gates on the east side of the terminal;
  • Addition of secured concourses between Terminals 3 and 4
  • TBIT so passengers with connecting flights do not have to exit the terminals and go through security screening again;
  • Renovation and modernisation of portions of the existing TBIT;
  • Relocation of existing Taxiways S and Q and a vehicle service road that connect the north and south runway complexes. [more]
