    Today near me was a open session for locals to see some of the plans for the proposed 3rd runway at Heathrow .................. like it or not I think it needs to happen, along with a 2nd runway at Gatwick

    I went along to understand what they are planning by way of infrastructure changes for people going to and from the airport ........ specifically from the south and south east, as at the moment the only options are really driving or train to London and out again...............

    Needless to say the consulation confirmed that such plans are NOT part of the consulation, they have to show that they have considered them but they don't have to deliver anything.

    So around the local hall were lots of plans and diagrams for everything except this subject except this:

    All these points read as if some spotty teenager has come up with some open "hopes" rather than what needs to happen...........

    Talk about a disjointed approach to such an important investment for the UK's future .............................

    I grew up in Hayes and schooled in Harlington and my mother has lived there and still does all her life. It will be a real shame when areas near Harlington like Sipson and Harmondsworth which have relatively escaped the Heathrow expansion disappear.

    to all the moaners, it's progress. if it's needed, then it,s got to be done. a bit like the moaners up here. ...

    " We can't get a decent signal on our mobile phones, but we will protest at EE/02/etc., erecting a mast to improve reception"

    " the traffic trough our town is mega congested, we can't get to work on time, but we will oppose the construction of a by-pass that will ease the problem".

    Going to a drop-in session next week about the changes to be made to flightpaths for Glasgow Airport...some will be upset!
    Personally, I like the present flightpaths as they don't give me any noise nuisance, but I can watch them come in and as they pass by I know I've just got time to get to the airport to meet my wife/daughter whoever...and that's another opportunity to fathom out the latest changes to the parking/pick up/drop off system, and find out how much more they want you to pay for 10 minutes.
    Apparently the current paths have been in use for years and for some reason they have to be amended...just wondering, if the runways remain the same, won't the planes still have to take off and land in the same directions?

    maybe the prevailing winds have altered course, caused by global climate change due to all these aircraft pumping out pollution.

    Does that mean they will have to swivel the runways a bit?
    Don't think there's enough room:(
