Engineering and construction firm Bechtel has been appointed to build the second runway and develop a midfield terminal at Gatwick Airport, UK.

Bechtel has been working with the airport for the last two years to define a robust delivery programme, execution plan and logistics strategy for the runway project, while ensuring the expansion is safe and less likely to disrupt existing infrastructure.

Once approved by the UK Government, the project will deliver the second runway by 2025.
