Heathrow


The press is reporting that, as expected, the Prime Minister will bypass Parliament to unilaterally give permission for a third runway at Heathrow.

I will not focus on the environmental arguments here but one has to ask why London is again receiving a £9 billion boost?

Surely, it would cost far less to upgrade regional airports around the country and, if need be, link them into London City Airport if this is about getting financiers into the country.

Alternatively, how about spreading the wealth in terms of a new build, as I have discussed previously.

Despite their sustainability agenda, the Assembly Government is supporting this development, saying that the high speed rail links to Heathrow will benefit Wales.

Shame, therefore, that the rail link to his own national airport remains incomplete and passengers are left stranded a mile from the Cardiff Airport terminal.
