Be a good idea to get on pronto with the 2nd runway, please, else when the grand plan meets reality, trouble ahead.
Yes, I accept that the pot should not call the kettle black! LHR's lack of runway capacity is a mistake best not repeated.
There genuinely does not seem to be any tardiness with that if noises coming out of the DAA are anything to go by. The stipulation set by the regulator was that construction could commence once 25 Million pax per annum was reached. We'll probably hit that in 2015.
Hearing that indeed the plan is grand.... grander than most would believe.
