Conservatives on London Assembly say time for Estuary airport has passed. The solution is a 2nd runway at Gatwick linked to Heathrow by rail

@BBCTomEdwards The time has passed? Have they forgotten that anything they set in motion now won't happen for at least two decades?

@alexjwalls @BBCTomEdwards Building a new airport with transit links is much further away than building 1 runway and 1 transit link.

@Assembly_Tories
@spetmologer not all Tories are for this plan, AM Victoria Borwick has another option which uses London's existing aviation infrastructure.

@AdamBienkov
@CapitanoRay probably one of the smaller ones like Manston, but again I'm not convinced we need more capacity.

@Assembly_Tories
@AdamBienkov @CapitanoRay AM Victoria Borwick is hoping to develop Manston along with expanding Gatwick and linking it to Heathrow.

@CapitanoRay
@Assembly_Tories @AdamBienkov Manston seems further away than "Boris Island". The environmental damage would be the same if not more?

@Assembly_Tories
@CapitanoRay @AdamBienkov Manston would focus on short haul traffic, serving its local area, and freight.

@Assembly_Tories
@CapitanoRay @AdamBienkov Environmentally the redistribution of some of Heathrow's traffic prevents planes being stacked waiting for runways
