Beckett Rankine unveils Offshore Airport in the Thames Estuary



With both Heathro and Gatwick pushing their limits, it is imperative that the UK begins to move forward with expanding their global aviation capacity. Over the years, multiple proposals have been presented, including Norman Foster’s “London Britannia Airport”. Now, Beckett Rankine has unveiled an inventive, offshore proposal located on the Goodwin sands in UK territorial waters nearly three kilometres off the east coast of Kent.



At an estimated cost of £39,200, the Goodwin Airport is proving to be one of the most affordable options yet. By locating the airport on the reclaimed Goodwin sands, this proposal offers a number of advantages, including no impact on protected environment, no displacement of residents, close proximity to the London’s high speed rail, and more.



The phased development would start with the construction of three runways served by one terminal building linked to satellite units with up to 150 aircraft slots. Its location will allow for 24/7 operations and a capacity of up to 150m passengers per year. As demand grows, a fourth runway would be constructed with a second terminal building with further satellites serving an additional 150 slots, providing 300 slots in total.



Each terminal will be perched on top its own high speed rail terminal with direct connections to central London, as well as – via the Channel Tunnel, Brussels – Lille, Paris, and the European high speed rail network.



Located at the water’s edge with stunning views of the White Cliffs of Dover, the terminal buildings will also incorporate high speed ferry terminals linking directly to Ramsgate and Dover. The reclamation of the island will mean that these ferry routes will run predominantly in semi-sheltered waters, similar to the Isle of Wight ferries, enabling operating speeds in excess of 20 knots.

A road tunnel will link Goodwin to the mainland, connecting into the trunk road network. In the early phases of the development, there will be sufficient space on the island to provide some long stay car parking with overspill long stay parking located on the mainland. In time as the island becomes fully developed the long stay car parking is likely to be provided on the mainland.

The appearance and functionality of the airport and its terminal will be critical to its efficient operation. And, with an unconstrained greenfield site, Beckett Rankine argues that there will be nothing to prevent Goodwin Airport from being the best airport in the World.

The actual cost is £39,200,000,000

Quite cheap but the Gensler design was much nicer, although twice as expensive

This proposal appears more sensible than an airport in the estuary area, but it would be billions cheaper simply to add runways to Gatwick and Stanstead airports - the sooner this is done the better,

You have to spend money to make money.

I am glad they are proposing real long term projects to reap the rewards in years to come.

Like the new super port they have just finished - The London Gateway - Europe's largest deep water super container ship port.

Will do nothing but benefit the UK.
