Gatwick is to start a focused statutory public consultation on its plans to bring the airport’s existing Northern Runway into routine use alongside its Main Runway.

The consultation will focus on the airport’s updated highway design, which has changed in response to feedback received during the Autumn 2021 consultation.

Full details of the revised plans for the roads around the airport will be published at the start of the consultation and will newly include proposals to:

  • Significantly redesign the original plan for the North Terminal junction
  • Add a new lane westbound over the Brighton main rail line
  • Add a third lane to the A23 approaching Longbridge roundabout

The plans for the South Terminal roundabout remain largely unchanged.
