Pascall+Watson proposes £200m London City Airport expansion
London City Airport has unveiled plans by Pascall+Watson for a £200million expansion
The architect practice which designed Dublin Airport’s T2 terminal (see AJ 11/01/11) has drawn up the plans for the East London airport’s American owner GIP to demonstrate what the facility could look like in 2023.
The scheme features new parking stands for larger planes, a taxilane to provide greater runway capacity and a new extension to the terminal.
The overhaul, which is being considered by Newham Council, would allow City to increase the number of take-offs and landings by 50,000 a year to 120,000.
The airport is not proposing a second runway or extensions to its existing runways.
The airport has told the Davies Commission on airport capacity that it could relieve capacity pressures at other airports by accommodating more short-haul flights.
