Facelift for Heathrow Terminal Three

BAA is to give Heathrow's Terminal Three forecourt a refubishment, with work to be completed by the end of the year.
The refurbishment should 'improve the passenger experience', according to BAA, by reducing traffic congestion and developing better pedestrian routes and security.The forecourt will extend to the south east side of the terminal building, allowing 40% more drop-off space, a 40m deep plaza with canopy, a new subway connection, which will have good links to public transport, and new kerbside check-in facilities.BAA CEO Tony Douglas said: 'This redevelopment of Terminal Three is an important step towards transforming Heathrow into a modern gateway for the UK. The new forecourt will provide a lighter, more spacious environment for our passengers and airlines.'The changes will significantly improve our passengers' experience of Terminal Three as we prepare for the terminal being occupied by different airlines from 2008,' he said.
