London's Proposed New Airport...

Jump to last reply

Plans have recently been announced for a new major London airport - dubbed Boris' Island Airport in some sources - to relieve the beleagured Heathrow and Gatwick airports - both Heathrow and Gatwikc want to add a new runway but efforts at Heathrow have been stymied by local opposition to yet more flights landing over a rather populated area - the new airport promises to have 24 hours of operation - something Heathrow cannot do I guess because of the noise at nearby residences.

A recent NYTimes article showed how special noise-proof domes have been built in some schools to shield kids from the constant noise of behemoth jets landing and taking off not far above.

So here are the plans for the new London airport - and good luck getting approval for what most folks say is desperately needed to relieve conditions at two of the world's busiest airports.
