[299] Crossrail, under construction in London, is Europe's largest construction project with a £15 billion projected cost. [300] [301] In the year from October 2009 to September 2010 UK airports handled a total of 211.4 million passengers. [302] In that period the three largest airports were London Heathrow Airport (65.6 million passengers), Gatwick Airport (31.5 million passengers) and London Stansted Airport (18.9 million passengers). [302] London Heathrow Airport, located 15 miles (24 km) west of the capital, has the most international passenger traffic of any airport in the world [293] [294] and is the hub for the UK flag carrier British Airways, as well as Virgin Atlantic.

[312] Production is now in decline and the UK has been a net importer of natural gas since 2004. [312] In 2009, half of British gas was supplied from imports as domestic reserves are depleted.
