Third Heathrow runway recommended
Plans for a third runway at Heathrow have been backed by the Airports Commission.
It has been suggested that the new runway will add £147bn into economic growth and provide 70,000 new jobs.
The government must now decide whether to act on the recommendation of the commission.
However London Mayor Boris Johnson has come out and told the BBC that the new runway would have a ‘catastrophic’ effect.
Mr Johnson is worried about the noise and pollution that would occur if the runway was to be built.
Not only would that but 800 homes also have to be demolished in order for the runway to go ahead.
UKMums.tv wants to know what you think. Is the new proposed runway a great idea? Or should we stay content with just the two runways?
