Monster muckshifting for Heathrow's Terminal 5 was surging ahead last week as contractors built a towering spoil stack. This mud mountain is being fed by the vast enabling works that will run until the end of the year. Already visible is an underpass portal for a spur road that will carry T5 traffic direct from the M25 - diving beneath the A3044 and airport perimeter road. A £1M temporary steel Bailey Bridge carries main contractor Laing's site traffic over the neighbouring roads.
