Will it be moved (or removed) when T5 opens?

I understand there are no plans to move it, in any case, it's a LHR landmark now, traffic reports refer to 'the Concorde roundabout'.

There was talk that Alpha Bravo, currently parked on the apron would be moved and be the gate guardian at T5 but that looks like thats may not happen now.

Terminal 5 is on schedule and on budget - amazing that we Brits managed this!
Terminal 5 consists of the main terminal building T5 A and two satellites, T5 B and T5 C.
T5 A and B will be fully operational in Spring 2008 with C opening in 2011.

The original date was March 2008. Although some parts of the project have been completed ahead of schedule including some aircraft stands that are already in use, the opening date has not been brought forward. I think this is because the detailed planning for BA's occupaqncy of the terminal is so intricate that opening early is a practical impossibility.

In addition to being completed on time it is also likely that T5 will be on or below budget. There have been no cost overruns so far but some parts of the project have been completed below forecast budget.

For those not familiar with major British construction projects - T5 is the largest European construction site at this time - this is all pretty amazing. Only hope those in charge of the London 2012 Olympics are learning from BAA.

When completed, the whole of T5 will have 60 aircraft stands and will able to handle over 30 million passengers a year.
Details about T5 can be found here:
Heathrow Terminal 5

Incidentally, Heathrow is planning to go under a complete overhaul. T2 is being demolished and a new Terminal will be built, capable of handling 30 million passengers a year - three times what T2 can currently handle! T3 is being completely refurbished (check-in area will be rebuilt and terminal will be re-designed by the designers of HKG).

Heathrow should look like this in 2012:

Check out the Concorde model just above the top runway! Seeing as this is the reason for this thread.

Zero chance of a third runway by 2012. Due to EU NO2 pollution regulations that come into force in 2010, the current levels of NO2 pollution in the LHR area - from the airport itself and the M4 and M25 motorways - will have to be significantly lower than today (through improved technology?) if the third runway is to be built. If this is achieved the third runway will be a short runway built parallel to and north of the current airport between the A4 road (the main road that runs east-west along the airport's northern boundary - and the M4 that runs east-west to the north of the A4. It will be used primarily for domestic flights and short haul European flights. This will enable the number of domestic feeder flights (that have significantly declined over the years) to be increased relinking British cities that no longer have flights to LHR and free slots on the two main runways for more longer haul flights.
