Heathrow proposes big extension of noise insulation scheme
Airport to spend £700m installing noise protection at homes from Windsor to Richmond if third runway plan gets go-ahead
Heathrow has proposed a big extension of its noise insulation scheme at a cost of around £700m should the third runway be developed, in a final attempt to persuade the Airports Commission of its case.
The move would almost treble the previously designated budget to offset the effects of aircraft noise, which has been the dominant factor in rousing local opposition to expansion.
