Reply To: Thames HubBack to Forum
alexlondon, i think the point that impresses me most with Thames hub compared to other options, particulary involving Heathrow, is the more holistic approach to national infrastructure which it envisages. Rather than looking at a hub airport as an individual entity (eg LHR), but as an integral part of the nation’s overall network, fully connected. Why not think big? The money will be there, yes it wont be cheap, but equally many costs will be recovered through land sales and future economic growth, as VK states its been done elsewhere, by our own companies, why not here?
