Sites proposed by main contractors Laing O’Rourke, Balfour Beatty and steelwork specialist Severfield are in the running as potential logistics hubs for the Heathrow Airport third runway expansion.

This morning Heathrow has unveiled its long list of sixty-five off-site centres for construction and manufacturing.

Over coming months these will be whittled down to just four sites to pre-assemble components of the expanded airport before transporting them in consolidated loads to Heathrow.

Heathrow Airport claims its third runway project will be the first major infrastructure project in the UK to pioneer the large-scale use of logistics hubs playing a key role in supporting expansion’s efficient delivery.

Heathrow Chairman Lord Deighton said: “As the UK leaves the EU, Heathrow is an essential infrastructure project that will ensure Britain remains an open trading nation.

“As part of that, Heathrow’s third runway will rely on talent from all over Britain helping to create a national asset for generations to come.

“This means new procurement opportunities for businesses in every region, helping drive growth and investment into local communities in all corners of this country.

“Our aim, to harness the skills we need through long-term projects such as the Logistics Hubs and Business Summits, will drive jobs and investment leaving a legacy of increased productivity for the construction sector.”

Civil Engineering Contractors Association chief executive Alasdair Reisner added: “We are keen that the whole of the UK benefits from the expansion of Heathrow. We see huge potential for the logistics hubs to stimulate the growth of new industrial heartlands across the country, manufacturing and assembling the high-quality components used by contractors to build world class new facilities for Heathrow”
