Reply To: New Buckinghamshire Airport

Back to Forum


If HMG is forcing, err “inducing” the denizens of Buckinghamshire to swallow HS2 through the Chilterns, does anyone imagine that the same citizens are going to take mildly to a four runway major international airport being parked in their midst? If it took over a decade for T5 at LHR, then this would take decades. With all of those Tory shire seats at stake, this has to be seen as a canard, a complete non-starter.

Whilst an Isle of Grain hub might be “on the wrong side of London”, it has the advantage of not being near or involving overflying of significant population centres and even if the RSPB can agitate, waders did not have the vote the last time I looked.
