Heathwick train to link major London airports but not London’s link to major international cities
With Heathrow full and Gatwick remaining the busiest international single runway in the world, the government of the UK has proposed that a new train linking the two major airports be developed to cut travel times between the two airports.
What’s the point though? This will only increase travel by 35 miles within London but with 2 miles of runway you can travel anywhere.
London could fall behind as a leading economic and business centre in the world if workers are not able to obtain direct access to key cities in China, India and Brazil.
