Heathrow Airport is among of the busiest in the world and as a result the roads surrounding Heathrow can become gridlocked, which is not only frustrating when trying to catch a flight but can also increase the risk of being involved in a road traffic accident.
We’ve been dealing with all areas of personal injury compensation for many years now and have developed this guide for your safety when navigating the roads around Heathrow Airport.
Arriving at Terminals 1, 2 and 3
If you are travelling by car and are departing from either terminal 1, 2 or 3 then exit the M4, Junction 4, or M25, Junction 15, and follow signs for Heathrow terminals 1, 2 and 3. The terminal buildings are located quite close together and are easy enough to find.
Arriving at Terminal 4
Terminal 4 is located at the south side of the airport site. It has a separate entrance and can be reached via Junction 14 on the M25 and following the signs for Heathrow Terminal 4. If you’re coming from the M4, leave at Junction 4b and follow the M25 south to Junction 14.
Arriving at Terminal 5
Terminal 5 is located on the Western Perimeter Road and has its own separate access road, reached from Junction 14 of the M25. If you’re coming from the M4, exit at Junction 4b and follow the M25 south to junction 14.
General safety tips
Ensure you leave with plenty of time to catch your flight. This will help to avoid any disturbances to your travel plans and also decreases the risk of being involved in a road traffic collision. Even if you are running short on time at the airport, it’s better to drive safely and arrive at the airport a little bit later than planned than not arriving at all.
