For the people of west London in general and of Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush in particular, a 3rd Runway at Heathrow would be intolerable, but it is not inevitable.
Heathrow and the Government’s thinking is stuck in the past and a prisoner of vested interests. There are better, simpler, cheaper alternatives. Not just the misery but the complexity of the Heathrow project means it is unlikely ever to get off the ground.
But it requires all of us who care about our environment, the functioning of our City and our quality of life to make the case against Heathrow expansion over and over again, until we win this final battle.
