The department of transport has selected Airports Link Consultancy to undertake a study examining the opportunities for improving access to and between London's main airports.

The purpose of the London Airports Access study is to examine the opportunities for economically beneficial improvements, particularly privately financed improvements, in access to and between London's main airports.

It will examine the extent to which such improvements would maximise the efficient use of airport capacity and relieve future congestion on road links to the airports, especially the M25 and associated radial motorways.

Their terms of reference have been set by an inter-departmental group which was set up in April to examine the scope for improving transport links between the airports in London.

The consultants are due to report back to the department of transport by summer 1996.

- The Airports Link Consultancy are a consortium of The MVA Consultancy, Scott Wilson Kirkpatrick and Prideaux and Associates Ltd.

MVA is one of the largest transportation planning consultancies in the UK; Scott Wilson Kirkpatrick are a multi-disciplinary consultancy experienced in transportation, modelling, engineering design, transport operation and traffic management. Prideaux and Associates provide railway expertise and senior management skills and, with Babcock and Brown (Europe) advice on private financing.
