The Example of London Heathrow

European Conference of Ministers of Transport

The purpose of this report is to identify the ways in which airports can provide, at the level of activity appropriate to their hinterland and by means of their ability to become integrated transport hubs, significant opportunities for further developing transport in their region. By establishing an Airport Surface Access Strategy, which is incorporated into the Local and Regional Transport Plans for the area, the surface access needs of the airport, and its role in transport, economic and social development, become part of the regional and local planning process.
