Minneapolis Saint Paul International Airport in the US will install new roadway signs to better direct drivers to terminals in Lindbergh and Humphrey.

The airport reports that around 25,000 passengers reach the wrong terminal every year as the terminals are miles apart and on two separate highways.

The airport will also list the names of airlines on the roadway signs, a first in the US, to assist travellers in finding the correct arrival or departure location. Currently, only airports with their own roadways can feature such signs.

As the terminals are located at two separate highways, drivers quickly need to decide the right direction to find their terminal as they approach the airport.

The project will be completed by early 2010 at a cost of $2.2m.
