Heathrow Expansion
Heathrow have unveiled a substantial and heavily detailed consultation for a substantial upgrade of the airport. The plans are focused around the construction of a third runway and new northern terminal, along with an expanded T5 and continued realignment of the central terminal area into a toaster configuration for improved efficiency in what is a heavily constrained environment. Another key component of the plans is a complete review of how passengers and employees interact with the airport, including the creation of two giant parkway areas to the north and south, extensive cycle infrastructure, diversion of several roads ( including diverting and burying the M25 orbital motorway under the new runway), high-capacity inter-terminal transit and new western and southern rail links to enable the airport to reduce emissions and improve connectivity.
