Heathrow ruling: Campaign for Better Transport reacts

27 February 2020

In response to the Court of Appeal's decision on Heathrow expansion, Darren Shirley, Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport, said:

"Improving rail and bus connections, including reopening disused rail lines and stations and creating a new generation of transport interchanges, will bring social, economic and environmental benefits to communities across the country. The Government should focus now on improving regional connectivity via sustainable transport."

ENDS
