Budget 2012: Hope for More Airport Capacity in South East, Says KPMG

Dr. Ashley Steel, KPMG’s global chair for transport comments:

“At long last pressure from business and lobby groups appears to be weakening the government’s previous resolve to oppose airport capacity in the South East.

“Finally there is hope for a third runway at Heathrow as the Government said it will ‘confront’ the lack of airport capacity in the South East.

“Additional runway capacity is essential for the continuing economic recovery. We urgently need greater access to the business opportunities found in the growing economies of Asia and Latin America. We hope the promised paper from the Secretary of State for Transport will commit to providing additional runway capacity quickly.”
