Due to planned engineering works and industrial action, there will be disruption to rail and London Underground services between Heathrow and Central London between Saturday 30 September and Friday 6 October 2023.


Over this period, there will be disruption to Heathrow Express and Piccadilly line services. The Elizabeth line will be operating as normal, and inter-terminal transfer services between all terminals will also be completed by these services.


Passengers should plan their journeys before travelling, and allow for additional time where necessary as services will be busier than normal.

ULEZ expansion - 29 August 2023

London's Ultra Low Emission Zone, or ULEZ, is expanding to encompass all of Greater London, including Heathrow Airport, from the 29 August 2023.


The initiative, implemented by Transport for London (TfL), is aimed at reducing air pollution in London, therefore all vehicles entering the airport must meet certain emissions standards in order to avoid paying a daily charge.


The daily charge for non-compliant vehicles is £12.50 for most vehicles, including cars, vans, and motorcycles.


The charge will be in addition to any other fees or charges associated with entering the airport. The charge only applies when a vehicle is driven within the ULEZ zone, and does not apply to stationary vehicles including when cars are parked at Heathrow.


Please note, if you have booked Meet & Greet or Valet Parking with a non-compliant vehicle, and have selected a different exit terminal to your entry terminal, you will be liable for payment of a ULEZ charge to transfer your vehicle to another terminal.

Local quality of life and wellbeing

As part of the Heathrow Centre of Excellence, one of the projects we're looking at is local quality of life and wellbeing around the airport.

By Heathrow
One of the most important issues for Heathrow is ensuring that it is the best neighbour it can be, delivering the greatest benefit to local people and communities whilst minimising negative impacts.​

The study of the issues of Community Wellbeing and Quality of Life for local people is therefore an important area for research – to identify more ways Heathrow can help to deliver ‘A Great Place to Live’. ​

The Centre is working with Brunel University London to explore the factors that combine to deliver Quality of Life and Wellbeing in local communities.​

A ‘research sprint’ took place during the second half of 2018, using focus groups to establish an initial list of over 200 wellbeing indicators. This area of research is being further developed in 2019.​
