British parliament votes to expand London's Heathrow Airport

Tue, Jun. 26, 2018
CAIRO – 26 June 2018: British lawmakers voted in favour of building a new runway at London's Heathrow Airport on Monday, paving the way for the airport's expansion after decades of delays and policy U-turns.

Lawmakers voted 415 to 119 to support the expansion, a decision that has long divided parliament regardless of party lines, with some opposed to threat of extra noise and air pollution in London, particularly its western regions.
