Road congestion around Heathrow: 4 October

The road tunnel leading to Terminals 2 and 3 is partly closed while safety checks are carried out. The outbound tunnel is closed but the inbound tunnel is open for contraflow movement. There is currently traffic congestion across the Heathrow road network so please avoid travelling by road, and instead use the rail network. Passengers can also use the free rail transfer service from Terminals 4 and 5 to get to Terminals 2 and 3.

 

We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

    Dedicated area for drivers of private hire vehicles and licensed taxis

    Heathrow opened an Authorised Vehicle Area on a trial basis this year when local residents and businesses expressed their concerns about the number of private hire vehicles waiting in local residential areas. This is a dedicated area for private hire vehicles and licensed taxis in which to wait for passengers prior to picking up from a short stay car park and meeting at an agreed location within the terminal.

    Open seven days a week, facilities include vending machines, hot refreshments, a covered smoking area, toilets and litter bins throughout.
