We cant have it both ways. The main UK airport needs both access to London/southeast England and keep disruptions to the minimum.

Maybe another extension of Crossrail into a new Thames estuary airport, but that needs to be planned for 30-50 years ahead.

Political Indecision and legal games mean there isnt going to be any major national infrastructure built forever.

The Supreme Court has breathed new life into plans for a third runway at Heathrow Airport.

The scheme was previously blocked by the Court of Appeal, who said the government’s airports strategy didn’t meet up-to-date UK climate targets. But the Supreme Court has ruled the strategy was legitimately based on previous, less stringent, climate targets at the time it was agreed.

The firm behind Heathrow can now seek planning permission for the runway. But it still faces major obstacles, including having to persuade a public enquiry of the case for expansion. And if planning inspectors approve the scheme, the government will still have the final say.”
