Campaign for Better Transport has responded to the submission of plans for a third runway at Heathrow to the Airports Commission
Stephen Joseph, Chief Executive, Campaign for Better Transport said
"Even without expanding Heathrow, huge investments are needed in train and tube networks serving west London just to keep pace with the capital's economy. We need to see what lies behind Heathrow's surface access plans to judge whether they can genuinely relieve congestion or improve air quality. It will take major changes to the way people access the airport for a third runway to be delivered without gridlock on local roads and public transport networks."
