Total waste of time. A far better plan would have been a second runway
at Gatwick.

Have they got one with a big enough cab to take all the people offering
to drive it?

....or a new terminal and a few road improvements - and maybe a rail spur
- at Manston.

I for one think that the idea that people who have little or no

disruption whilst they rebuild the M25 to create this Hub airport
entirely unreasonable

Highly unlikely ever to happen.

Boris did promise to lay down in front of the bulldozer, after all.


True to form, I gather he's backed down from that commitment.


but that doesn't mean that he's backed away from not liking it

and therefore might cancel it when he has the lever to do so


Johnson changes his principles more often than his hairdo. It suited him
(and his successor) to oppose Heathrow expansion while mayor of London (I
think Khan was pro-expansion when he was a transport minister).

Boris got quieter on the subject when he became MP for a constituency with
many Heathrow workers, and might well flip if he becomes PM and discovers
that the business community that he's already offended, and key Tory donors
strongly support Heathrow expansion.

I think the extra runway is to steal the intercontinental passengers who
are currently transferring at Schiphol, so I don't see how a new
terminal at Manston is going to help.

It would mean that many short haul travellers in Kent and South East
Sussex would not have to slog over to Heathrow or even over to Stansted
or Gatwick, thereby reeieving them of the need to use the M25.

Almost no airlines were interested in using it; the local catchment area is
much too small.

well I don't know about the rest,

Why do you think M25 users will suffer five years of disruption? It's more
likely to be a few night time closures or lane restrictions.
