Heathrow has secured a prestigious award for ‘Best Contribution to Corporate Responsibility’ from The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) for the Terminal 2 development.
Heathrow’s runways and terminals should be bulldozed to make way for a “garden city”, says a new report to be published tomorrow. Former government adviser Graeme Bell said it was time to “reinvent” the site that is increasingly ill-suited to the needs of a modern hub airport.
As a resurgent case for the Third Runway gathers momentum, Norman Foster argues that while limited Heathrow expansion would displace 5,000 people and take 12 years to build, a new Thames Estuary hub could be built in just 2 years more – giving 14 years to plan alternative local employment.
Details of Phase 2 of the Operational Freedoms trial which include dual-use runways were announced by the Government yesterday. Following a recommendation by the CAA, the Minister also confirmed a 6 month extension of Phase 2 which will now run from 1 July 2012 to 31 March 2013.
New measures set out today by the Aviation Minister Theresa Villiers to alleviate stacking at Heathrow will allow, exceptionally, both Heathrow’s runways to be used simultaneously for either arrivals or departures as a way to cut delays and cancellations and get punctuality back on track.
Colnbrook residents affected by flight noise from Heathrow could be entitled to more help. The airport has launched a 12-week consultation, with an exhibition visiting Colnbrook Village Hall to explain proposed changes to mitigation schemes which include financial help towards double glazing, or sale costs if they want to move away from the area.
