A public inquiry into plans to construct London Heathrow's Terminal 5 (T5) has finished after four years of taking evidence. The inquiry inspector is not expected to file a report for two years, with another six to 12 months before the UK Government gives its verdict. If it goes ahead, the first phase should be operational by 2006. BAA says that T5 would increase passenger capacity by 20 million and air transport movements by 8%.
