“No Room for a 3rd Runway U-turn” – Cllr Liz Green, Leader, Royal Borough of Kingston

Responding to today’s press reports that the Government’s Airports Commission will recommend a 3rd or even a 4th runway at Heathrow, Cllr Liz Green, Liberal Democrat Leader of Kingston Council said:

“The planned new runway is to the south of the airport and could have a massive impact on Kingston residents.

“If these leaked reports are right, then it will be an environmental disaster for residents in the North of Kingston, who will face low flying planes landing directly overhead every 90 seconds.

“The fact is that we can’t carry on encouraging more and more low-cost air travel indefinitely to and from Heathrow. We need a totally different approach - one that shifts short-haul trips onto high speed rail and ensures that the cost of flying properly reflects its environmental impacts.”

“The Lib Dem Administration in Kingston will continue to fight tooth and nail against the expansion of Heathrow airport and we won’t let the Tories or Labour risk the return of these third runway proposals.”

“There’s no room for a 3rd runway u-turn in Kingston.”
