Building Olympic Terminal at Heathrow Airport Will Create New Jobs

Heathrow Airport has unveiled its plans for dealing with high volume of extra passengers expected to arrive ahead of this summer’s London Olympics, which could fuel civil engineering recruitment.

As reported earlier this week, Heathrow Airport has announced to build a new terminal for the London Olympic Games to ease the increased traffic of people at one of the busiest airports in the world.

Building work at London Heathrow will create new jobs, transport networks and regenerate 6th runway in Heathrow Airport, which expects nearly 50% more passengers arriving on July 26, the day before the opening ceremony.

As part of preparations for the new terminal at Heathrow, building construction work will take place to build specialist lifts for Paralympians and improve facilities from which participating athletes will depart.

Nick Cole, Heathrow’s head of Olympic and Paralympic planning, asserted: “The London 2012 Games will be a unique operational task and a massive challenge for Heathrow.

“The airport is one of the most popular international airports in the world and already operates close to capacity.”- Mr Cole added.

Work is also currently underway on Heathrow’s new £2.2 billion terminal two, which will replace its existing terminals one and two once completed in 2014, with around 5,000 people to be employed on the site of this project.

  1. Travel expert Simon Clader told the BBC that Heathrow will never be able to cope with snow or any other minor disruption whilst it operates at 99% capacity after it cancelled 41% of its flights following an inch or so of snow earlier this month. Will a new temporary terminal really help it cope with what it predicted to be the busiest day in its history (the day after the closing ceremony)? I fear disaster and humiliation that would put a dampener on a successful games. Please Heathrow, prove me wrong !
