Bechtel pledges to deliver Gatwick Airport expansion project by 2025

Engineering firm Bechtel has pledged to deliver London Gatwick Airport’s proposed second-runway project by 2025, should the airport be granted approval for expansion.

For the past two years Bechtel has been working with Gatwick Airport on developing a delivery program, execution plan and logistics strategy to support the on-time development of a second runway and midfield terminal. As part of this planning work, Bechtel has confirmed that expansion at Gatwick Airport is low risk and benefits from minimal critical interfaces with existing infrastructure – making it deliverable by 2025.

Renowned architect Sir Terry Farrell has also been working on shaping Gatwick’s vision of a new runway and terminal facility for a number of years and will work with Bechtel to bring the project to fruition.

Stewart Wingate, CEO, Gatwick Airport, said, “Bechtel is a global leader with a strong track record in delivering significant infrastructure projects and we look forward to working together to deliver the UK’s next runway.

“Gatwick expansion can happen quickly because it is simple and low risk with a dramatically lower environmental impact.

“A bigger Gatwick would generate the new long haul routes and the economic boost that Britain needs. It’s time for Gatwick to deliver the certainty and growth the UK needs.”

Amjad Bangash, general manager for infrastructure – Europe, Africa and Middle East, Bechtel, said, “We are delighted to be confirmed as Gatwick Airport’s partner for the second runway program.

“We have provided Gatwick with robust plans for a second runway and are confident that this low risk project can be built to the highest quality, safely and sustainably – and that it can be operational by 2025.”
