THE rebuilding of cargo warehouses at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) has been shelved for 18 to 24 months as priority is assigned to passenger facilities instead, reports New York's FreightWaves.

Addressing 200 forwarders, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) property chief Ramon Oliveres said a new Request for Proposals to redevelop 29 cargo facilities would be issued within two years.



But environmental impact statements for large infrastructure projects take years and the limited inter-agency coordination and community feedback required, to delay construction even further.



'To put it bluntly, there were just too many projects, too many impacts that were going on at the same time to allow all these projects to proceed uninterrupted to completion,' said Mr Oliveres.



'A decision had to be made about which project would go first and which would go last. And I can't tell you how disappointed that I personally was in the ultimate decision to postpone the cargo project because for 30 years [during my career here] I believe we have not focused enough on cargo,' he said.
