London Britannia Airport Updates

The London Britannia Airport was previously known as the Thames Hub Airport and Boris Island. It is a proposal for a six runway hub airport that would cost £47.3bn and is to be located on the Isle of Grain in Kent.

This site is 34 miles away from the centre of London and is near to HS1. This airport can be reached by high speed rail link in around 26 minutes. Testrad (Thames Estuary Research and Development) said that this island plan eschewed many problems including demolition of houses and industrial buildings, acquisition of private lands and bird strikes.

The aircrafts are separate from people and there will not be any noise due to landing and departures that will take place in estuary than residential areas. This is one of the main advantages according to the Thames Estuary Research and Development.

London Heathrow’s Third Runway

Heathrow Airport has revealed its plans to the Airports Commission for a third runway that would either lie to the North, North West or South West of the airport. The third runway according to Heathrow Airport will increase flights from 480,000 to 740,000 per year and will be built at an estimated cost of between £14bn to £18bn.

All three options have certain benefits, whilst northwest and southwest options are Heathrow’s preference. The North-West option is better in comparison with North, as it ends with a lesser impact on residential property. It may cost just a little more and take a little longer to build but it’s one of the preferred options. Harmondsworth Moor, Harmondsworth, St. Mary’s church, Tithe Barn and around 950 homes in Longford will be in danger zone for this option.
