Heathrow Airport has announced that three Doncaster sites are still in the running to become logistics hubs for the Heathrow expansion.
Welcoming the news, airport campaigner Caroline Flint said:
“The news that Doncaster has three sites as potential Logistics Hubs for the construction of the new runway at Heathrow is a huge vote of confidence in Doncaster. Doncaster is gaining a reputation for having the skills, logistics and transport links right in the heart of the country. We can make a real contribution to the success of this project if Doncaster is given the chance. It is exciting that one of the Business Summits – a major event for suppliers – is being partnered by Doncaster Chamber and held in Doncaster. There is a big opportunity for Yorkshire to play a major role in this project.”
Other South Yorkshire areas to make the list include Sheffield and two in Barnsley.
