Temporary Drop Off Zone and Ramp Works

Project Principals and Objectives

In February 2018 Ryebridge was appointed to construct a temporary drop off zone, including a road over bridge structure to facilitate free passenger movement from drop off to terminal.

All works were required for completion no later than 30th May 2018 with the handover of the Mass Passenger Transit (MPT) site on the 1st May.

London Luton Airport required the design and build of an enabling works package consisting of:

  • Temporary drop off zone

  • Relocated barrier controls

  • New perimeter road and supporting road over bridge structures

  • Plan and fully implement an enablement strategy for a new Multi-Storey Car Park allowing the existing DOZ to be closed and the site cleared for the construction of the proposed Mass Passenger Transit (MPT) system

  • Removal and storage of high mast lights ready for reinstatement at a later date

  • From April 2018 the contractor was to permit access onto the Multi-Storey Car Park (SCP) 2 site for 6no test piles to be installed and tested by the MSCP2 contractor.

During the works there was also the requirement that deliveries were not permitted during the Airport’s Peak Operating Period. The Peak Operating Period was between 04:00 and 08:00 daily.
