The Supreme Court has given the go-ahead for LHR R3. Of course, HAL isn't
going to be in any hurry to build it.

Actually, it's given the go-ahead for HAL to make a planning application
(which could still fail). According to the lunchtime news they've
largely disbanded the team working on that, so it could take a while.


Oh, I don't think HAL will be in any hurry to pursue this opportunity. It
currently has much more pressing concerns. It's much more likely to
prioritise the re-development of the central terminals, given the current
low demand. With T3 temporarily closed, there may be an opportunity to
close a wing of it permanently, and accelerate the expansion of T2.
