Fight or flight?


Ken Livingston’s development plans for London City airport are about to cause problems in the City, the Times has reported.

The newspaper has claimed to be in possession of a letter from one city employer to the Mayor, asking for a meeting to discuss his "apparent opposition to the continuing success of London City airport".

Current plans are for Crossrail to join the City to Heathrow, however, as the paper points out, London City airport is far closer.

Funding for Crossrail was agreed on October 7th 2007. The development of the line is expected to begin in 2010 and employ up to 14,000 people.

The Greater London Authority has claimed it "will carry twice as many passengers as the Jubilee Line, reduce journey times from Heathrow to Canary Wharf to just 43 minutes, and add ten per cent to London’s overall transport capacity".

City offices need reliable business links – as more business property is built, infrastructure has to develop and keep pace.
