Heathrow Tunnel Closure. May 2014 -December 2015

Refurbishment works of the main and cargo tunnels at London Heathrow will commence from May next month through to December 2015.
RMT LTDB learns that the side bore tunnel will be closed entirely for the duration of the works with the main tunnel being closed nightly from 22.00-05.30.
Surveys carried out last year explored the possibility of daytime  or alternative closures but it was decided that one tunnel remain open whilst the other is closed completely. Concerns were raised as drivers ranking at terminals 1-3 would be forced to use the main tunnel impacting on congestion and time from the feeder park.

BAA plans for the tunnel are for it to be similar to T5  with a ‘Living Garden’ hiding the tunnel entrance, enhancing passenger experience and improving internal treatment by simple lighting.
