Heathrow Airport has unveiled a proposal to expand its airport, including plans to open a new runway by 2026.

This would be the London airport's third runway. The new runway will be 3,500 meters long and would be located in the north-west area of the airport.

According to architectural designs released by Heathrow Airport Expansion Consultation website, the proposed runway would be turned into a bridge as it passes over the M25, a motorway around London.

According to the BBC, expansion plans include building one single site for cars to park at. The new site would be built at the northern part of the airport on an unspecified date.

By 2050, the airport also plans to unveil a new terminal that would integrate indoor and outdoor spaces. Additional plans include creating a low carbon-emissions zone and reducing noise pollution in the area.
