Councillor Davod Harrison

Heathrow Motion

The Conservatives at Hampshire County Council have put down a Motion on the agenda for the Full Council this week, calling upon the authority to support the construction of a third runway at Heathrow airport.

I generally don’t favour spending time discussing things which are way outside the control of the Council and that I know won’t make the slightest bit of difference to government thinking, one way or the other.

However, it does at least give me the opportunity that I wanted, to raise the question of the Waterside railway line and opening it up to a passenger service.

This is something that is in Hampshire and could happen, should they choose to support it.

I have worked out that it would cost one thousand times less than the Heathrow project, (estimated to be £18.6 billion).
