The biggest airport in the world. London's residents and political class have expressed their concern about the new proposal done by the prestigious British architect Norman Foster who wishes to develop the biggest airport in the world in the capital of Great Britain.
Apparently, Foster is a defender of the idea that in times of crisis one needs to be ambitious and take advantages of the available opportunities, at least this can be deduced by the vision of its macro project that has counted with the support of the Major of London, conservative Boris Johnson.
The planned airport will be developed on one of the islands of the Thames, Grain, and it will have a capacity for more than 150 million passengers while requiring a public investment of around 51,000 million British Pounds (60,000 million Euros- more than 82,000 U.S. Dollars).
Lord Foster's idea, although very impressive it may be not really necessary mainly considering that are five airports in and around London: Luton, Stansted, Gatwick, City Airport and the main one, Heathrow, which terminal 5 took many years and a great amount of money to be built, being finally inaugurated only 3 years ago.
