The Los Angeles City Planning Commission (CPC) has recommended approval for the $5.5bn landside access modernisation programme (LAMP) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in California, US.

The recommendations included approval for zone change requests and amendments to a wide range of municipal planning documents, along with the use and development of Los Angeles World Airports’ (LAWA) proposed LAMP project.

Approval for LAMP was recommended during a special joint meeting of the CPC with the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC).

BOAC president Sean Burton said: “This is a momentous time for the city and LAX, and we are appreciative our CPC colleagues’ support and approve these plan amendments.

"This is a momentous time for the city and LAX, and we are appreciative our CPC colleagues’ support and approve these plan amendments."

“The proposed $5.5bn LAMP project would be a major element of LAWA’s $14.4bn capital improvement programme, and would be central to transforming LAX into a world-class airport.”

The amendments were approved for four separate plans, including the LAX Plan, the Westchester-Playa del Rey Community Plan, Mobility Plan 2035, and the LAX Specific Plan. 

LAMP will involve the development of an automated people mover (APM) that would commute passengers between the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) and other primary project components located east of the CTA.

Other major project components include a consolidated rent-a-car facility (ConRAC), and two new intermodal transportation facilities, which involve public parking and passenger drop-off and pick-up areas.
