Overview

Britain’s Gatwick airport released a draft plan on Thursday saying it wanted to move its standby runway 12 inches (30 cm) to the north away from its main runway and use it for short-haul flights by the mid-2020s.

A group of MPs said on Friday that the government should bring forward the ban on sales on new petrol and diesel cars to 2032, to help Britain meet its climate change targets.

A study into UK’s HS2 says the rail project will cost taxpayers 25 percent more than similar schemes in other countries.
