Heathrow effect on local road queues
THE Gazette’s article in your 28th October edition refers to Heathrow’s inflated claims of benefits to the local economy, these are certainly false in my considered opinion.
The massive increase in road traffic will cause more and larger traffic jams, possibly stretching back to Harrow, causing damage to the economy and deterring inward investment.
On the other hand supporters of Boris Island fail to stress its benefits to the Airline Industry.
As its sound footprint is over water flying round the clock would be possible, better than having aircraft grounded overnight.
Hillingdon residents would also be spared of disturbance from night landings and late takeoffs.
I wonder if the income from landfill charges have been considered when calculating the cost of the island.
