GROUND ACCESS--THE KEY TO AIRPORT DEVELOPMENT

Areas of (environment, land use planning, ground access) concern to the Los Angeles Department of Airports are briefly discussed, improvements to ground access to airports are listed, and solutions to the problem of providing ground access for about 30 million annual air passengers in the 1980's are outlined. Ground access improvements which have been completed or are currently underway are: a Center Way running east and west through the main parking lot to the central terminal area; airport radio traffic service which provides traffic and parking information to auto drivers; an additional traffic lane to the main traffic artery within the central terminal area; and a reduced rate park-and-ride facility. The problem of providing access for passengers in the late 1980's may be resolved in 4 ways: provision of a better way for short distance travellers; better use of other existing airports so that all traffic--short-haul, medium-haul, and long-haul--is not funneled through one airport; improvements to ground access at existing airports for example by double decking of the roadway; and dispersed or remote parking.
