Northern Runway Project Highway Improvements – Summer 2022 Consultation

You may already have responded to the Revised Highway Plans Consultation from Gatwick Airport.  If not then there is still time as the consultation closes next week on 27/07/2022.

The plans show further improvements to the road network (you can see a video of these at https://vimeo.com/719951513) alongside other revisions around car parking, hotels, offices & public transport.  You may like to share this along with the full details of the revised plans for the roads around the airport, which can be found at https://www.gatwickairport.com/futureplans.

The airport’s proposal would see the Northern Runway brought into routine use, for departing aircraft, by repositioning its centreline further north by 12 metres – enabling dual runway operations with the Main Runway.  The Northern Runway could be operational by summer 2029.  The majority of the construction works associated with the airfield would be contained within the existing airport boundary and the cost of works – approximately £500m – will be privately financed.  The proposals are also low impact, are in line with Government policy of making best use of existing runways and would generate approximately 18,400 additional jobs by 2038 and an additional expected £1.5bn annual GVA to the region.  The project will also be delivered in a sustainable way which helps the airport to meet its goal of zero airport emissions.

If you have any questions or would like further information, as always please just let me know.

Kind regards

Jeremy
