Major investment ahead of 2014 Commonwealth Games kicks off with initial £12m spend on facilities and runway improvements

Glasgow airport has announced a £25m expansion plan to improve passenger facilities and traffic access over the next two years, the BBC has reported.

The airport will invest £12m in 2010, followed by a further £13m in 2011. The company expects to spend up to £100m by 2014, when Glasgow hosts the Commonwealth Games.

Planned improvements include work on the airport road system, a new food court, a runway lighting system and upgrades to the airfield taxiway.

This is the latest in a series of high profile investments at Glasgow airport. Last year, it opened a £31m terminal extension - the biggest single investment for more than a decade.

Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: "These improvements will deliver a better passenger experience, provide enhanced terminal facilities, and improve the efficiency of our taxiway and runway infrastructure.”
