Plans to double the size of one of Heathrow Airport's existing runways will go on show at a series of public meetings in the new year.
Heathrow Hub will display its vision in Harmondsworth, Ealing, Datchet, Staines, Iver, Windsor, Colnbrook and Cranford in January.
20/01/15 - Colnbrook Village Hall, Colnbrook Village Hall, Vicarage Way, Colnbrook, Berkshire, SL3 0RF. 13.00-18.00
The plans involve extending the length of the airport's northern runway to more than four miles, which campaigners say will reduce night-time noise over West London.
The proposal is one of three being considered by the Airports Commission. It is up against plans for building a new runway at either Heathrow or Gatwick.
Under the plans, the extended runway would be divided into two sections, separated by a 650-metre buffer zone, allowing planes to land on one part while others take off from the other.
A section of the M25 would need re-routing into a tunnel beneath the runway, which the plans' architects say would provide the opportunity to widen the road and ease traffic flows.
They say it would cost significantly less than building a third runway, which they claim would allow for higher compensation for those affected, and could be finished by 2023.
