Lift off for a third runway at London’s Heathrow Airport

The UK government's decision, announced today, to approve a third runway at Heathrow will open up huge opportunities for Architects and Engineers. Commenting on the decision UK Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said:

"The step that government is taking today is truly momentous. I am proud that after years of discussion and delay this government is taking decisive action to secure the UK’s place in the global aviation market – securing jobs and business opportunities for the next decade and beyond.

"A new runway at Heathrow will improve connectivity in the UK itself and crucially boost our connections with the rest of the world, supporting exports, trade and job opportunities. This isn’t just a great deal for business, it’s a great deal for passengers who will also benefit from access to more airlines, destinations and flights."
