Sunday Telegraph: "Boris Island airport 'almost as quick to build as third Heathrow runway'"


Link to Sunday Telegraph

"A new airport in the Thames estuary could be built within 14 years, only two years longer than would be needed to build a third runway at Heathrow, according to new research.

"... The scheme has previously been criticised for taking too long before it could ease pressure on Britain's busiest airport.

"But a report for architects Foster + Partners, which has produced the plans for an airport on the Isle of Grain in Kent, suggest it would barely take longer than proposals to extend Heathrow."
