Saffron Walden MP Sir Alan Haselhurst paid a visit to Stansted Airport today (Friday) to see how work is progressing on the £80 million terminal transformation project .

He was given a behind the scenes guided tour of the construction site by project director, Martin Lyall, who said: “We were delighted to welcome Sir Alan to Stansted and hope that he leaves us today better informed about our very exciting terminal transformation project.

“We’re five months in to the project and we’re making great progress.

“Our new domestic reclaim area has been delivered ahead of schedule and we’re on-track to open the new security search in the coming weeks.”

Mr Lyall added: “There’s still lots more to do and we will begin construction on the departure lounge shortly. Stansted is changing and we’re confident passengers, staff and Sir Alan will love the new airport when it’s finished in 2015.”
