London City Airport: New ‘Tulip’ building could interfere with air traffic control

Developers recently submitted plans to build a 1000 foot building in the city of London, named the ‘Tulip’ and now one airport is claiming that the tall structure could potentially affect air traffic in the capital.

The London airport stated that the building should not be green-lit until consultation on air traffic control and if it will be affected goes ahead.

London City Airport’s technical operations coordinator recently stated in a letter that: “Construction shall not commence until an assessment has been carried out on the impact of this development on the radar coverage.”

The building aims to become a designated public tourist space to attract schoolchildren and other visitors to London’s centre.
