BA Chief says Heathrow 3rd runway “will never be built”

BA chief executive Willie Walsh has said that a third runway at Heathrow “will never be built”. He told a Times CEO yesterday that “it’s dead” and that British Airways were looking for expansion elsewhere.

This is brilliant news for the residents of Sipson, Harmondsworth and Harlington and hopefully now we will see the full transformation of the villages that have been blighted for so long.

John Stewart, chair of the residents organisation HACAN said:

“It now looks as if finally the third runway has been killed off. It’s most enthusiastic backers, British Airways, are now planning for life without a new runway.”

Stewart added:

“BAA should now sell off the houses they have bought in Sipson to allow life in the villages to get back to normal.”

Ain’t that the truth.
