Val Shawcross AM Statement on Thames Estuary Airport Decision

BI

Val Shawcross AM has responded to news that the Airports Commission has ruled a Thames Estuary airport option off its final shortlist:

"Boris Johnson has long known that an estuary airport option was simply not viable, but has ploughed on regardless and wasted more than £5m of taxpayer money pursuing this pie-in-the-sky vanity project.

“If anything, Londoners now deserve an apology from their Mayor. He has wasted valuable public money promoting an estuary airport to raise his profile, when the expert evidence all along suggested the idea was environmentally and financially doomed."
