    From 2 to 14 August we will be changing to single runway operations overnight from 20:00, landing on and taking off from the southern runway. This is to accommodate essential surface repair works to our northern runway.

    The works coincide with our scheduled night-time runway alternation pattern which specifies the southern runway during this period. We will resume dual runway operations each morning at 06:00 in line with our normal published alternation pattern.

    The works will not take place if there is a risk of low visibility the following morning, so the decision to proceed with the works will be made on a daily basis. We will provide regular updates on our runway operations on the Heathrow Noise Twitter page as usual. We would like to apologise for any disturbance caused.
