Heathrow airport expansion : Will it grow
government is expected to publish proposals today for the expansion of
Heathrow Airport. The plans should include the development of a third
runway. Does Heathrow need to be any bigger?
expansion, including a third runway, could see passenger numbers
increase from 67 to 128 million travellers per year.
The aviation industry says a bigger Heathrow is vital to protect the economies of London and Britain as a whole.
residents have been briefed on the proposals but are still concerned
about the impact of any expansion, despite assurances from the
government that a new runway won't breach European standards for local
air quality and noise. Do you live near Heathrow? What do
you think of the proposals for expansion? Is there a need for another
runway? Are you concerned about the impact this proposed expansion
could have on the environment?
