ELEVATORS, ESCALATORS PART OF LAX EXPANSION

Elevators, escalators and moving walks linking a new, US$2.7-billion automated people mover (APM) to various floors of expanded terminals at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) are part of a US$336-million contract awarded by Los Angeles World Airports to Austin Commercial Inc. of Dallas to build the seven terminal extensions, the Los Angeles Business Journal reports. The centerpiece of a US$5.5-billion program to ease congestion at LAX, the APM was out for bid earlier this year. Both the APM, which will take travelers to three sites — a car rental facility about 1 mi. away, a metro station and the central terminal area — and terminal extensions are due for completion in approximately 2023.
