Cork Airport has announced it is introducing a new road traffic management system to facilitate growing passenger numbers.
The measures include investment in an upgrade of the forecourt, improved access to car parks, improved signage, a new two-way road system to the Red Express car park and enhanced public transport lanes, all designed to improve road traffic at the airport.
Construction will commence immediately following the recent granting of planning permission, with the new system planned to be fully operational from March of next year.

Con Dooney, general manager operations and safety at Cork Airport, commented, "Over 2.4 million passengers will pass through Cork Airport this year, our third consecutive year of growth, and this will rise again next year by a further 7% to 2.6 million. To cater for this significant increase, we need to make improvements to our roads infrastructure.
"Our customers’ airport experience is of the utmost importance to us. The road traffic management system will make the overall airport experience smoother, quicker and safer for all passengers, whether they are using public transport, private cars or hire vehicles."
