Heathrow plans sloping runway to cut costs by $3.4 billion

Written by on January 18, 2018

London’s Heathrow airport put forward proposals for a sloping runway and said the landing strip could be shortened as it seeks to cut 2.5 billion pounds ($3.4 billion) from the cost of expansion plans. Europe’s busiest hub also proposed the phased opening of new terminals and a number of alternative road links as part of a 10-week consultation aimed at reducing the expense of the 16 billion-pound project to a level where it could be funded without a significant hike in user charges.
