Further Description

  • Any increase in travel or air fares to fund infrastructure is not acceptable to at least two in five British adults

 Just one in six British adults (16%) would support the building of an Estuary Airport in the Thames at the expense of closing existing facilities at Heathrow, City and Southend according to new research.

 A public opinion survey, carried out by ComRes and commissioned by Medway Council and Kent County Council, asked more than 2,000 British adults if they supported plans for a new airport in the Thames Estuary. Just over a third (38%) say that they would support an estuary airport. However, this figure plummets to just 16% when people are told that existing major facilities would have to close as a result.
