Ministers are being taken for fools. The Extended Runway Plan responds to Heathrow Airport Ltd’s latest 3rd Runway idea
A spokesman for the extended runway concept, Heathrow Hub said: “It is unbelievable that nearly six years into this process, Heathrow are still producing new ideas. This time, the Airport claims it wants to move the M25 150m to the west, dig the motorway into the ground, cut the runway length and put it on a ramp. But there is precious little detail on how this will be done in practice, or what the implications will be of closing or restricting the M25. There is no detailed breakdown of costs and how these will be passed on to passengers and airlines. It is a Heath Robinson Plan.
“Both Chris Grayling, the Transport Secretary and Theresa May, the Prime Minister, are yet again being taken for fools by a major infrastructure provider. They need to demand proper detail from Heathrow and ensure the Department for Transport understand it, rather than letting Heathrow get away with issuing yet more pictures.”
