Construction

We recognise that the construction and operation of an expanded airport will affect the day to day lives of local people. There will be some negative effects but also some positive ones. We take seriously our responsibility to those around us to minimise the potential negative effects of expansion during and after construction.


This section explains our construction activities, how we propose to schedule and manage them to minimise effects, and the sites we think we will need for construction.

As with our Preferred Masterplan, our proposed approach to construction has been informed by engagement with the Heathrow Strategic Planning Group, which represents many of the local authorities surrounding the airport.
