Comment: the peace and joy of Christmas

Christmas has always been a special time, and it holds some wonderful memories of early years, when youthful exuberance shaped my world, and it’s a time remembered for the happiness of family gatherings and the sound of kids waking early to see what Santa had delivered.

With work set to commence on the expansion of Ballina/Byron Gateway Airport, the drop-off and pick-up areas, together with bus and taxi zones, are being moved away from the front of the terminal.

The size of the terminal is set to increase by some 30 per cent – and most of that will be at the front of the existing building.

While work is taking place, drop-offs and pick-ups will take place in the car park zone in front of the building, rather than right outside.

Taxi, shuttle bus and hire car access will be located on the western side of the building.

Traffic entry into airport has also changed. Once you arrive at the airport precinct, instead of taking the first left as usual drive straight ahead and take the second left.

The short- and long-term car parks are open as usual for all services, but Ballina Council advises allowing a little extra time in arriving at the airport during construction.
