Heathrow to get a third runway
The British government has decided that Heathrow Airport outside London is to be expanded with a third runway.

The question of an increase in air traffic in southwest England has been a hot potato in British politics for many years, writes the BBC.

In particular, parliamentarians coming from the municipalities near the airport have been opposed to the expansion of Heathrow, along with most people living there.

Britain's Foreign Minister Boris Johnson is among those who have been strongly opposed to the plans.

But on Tuesday the proposal was approved in a Cabinet meeting, according to the British Ministry of Transport.

To avoid that some ministers are leaving the government, Prime Minister Theresa May has opened for government officials to criticize the decision, if they have sought her permission to do so in advance.

The construction of a third runway is expected to begin in 2020 or 2021.
