Airport taxi rank walkway rejected

Instead the taxi rank at the Airport is to be moved much closer to the doors to stop people getting wet when it is raining and windy.

Soon the cars will wait only five feet from the entrance doors rather than the current 25 feet away, said Assistant Economic Development Minister Alan Maclean.

And he said the decision to draw a new white line for the rank was hugely preferable to the option of spending up to £175,000 to construct a link between the terminal and the taxi rank.

‘There is nothing I dislike more than spending money on unnecessary projects.

The experts said any covered link would be expensive because it is very windy there and the structure would have to be robust enough to cope,’ he said.
