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.
