Heathrow has been campaigning for 25 years to build an extra runway and the decision, already repeatedly delayed, was pushed back again following Britain’s June 23 vote to leave the European Union.
“There are three schemes on the table for us to consider. They’re all, in their own way, very impressive,” Grayling told ITV.
“We’re going to take the decision in the not-too-distant-future, I’m not going to give you a set date,” Grayling said, later adding that the decision would be announced “very soon”.
