200901091243.jpgStarting Monday, LondonUnlocked will begin a series of articles by London Assembly Members and MPs on the future of Heathrow.

Recently London's busiest airport rarely seems to be out of the news. Debate rages on the merits of a third runway, the addition of a major rail hub, high-speed rail links to other major UK cities or a Eurostar terminus, and the potential side-lining of the site with the construction of a new airport being built in the Thames estuary.

The debate divides politicians on both sides of the aisle, and ignites passion in environmentalists, local residents and business-leaders. Join us from Monday to see what some of those who will play a key role in any future debate are saying.
