Boris Calls For Stansted Expansion
The Mayor London has renewed calls for a second runway at Stansted Airport to help alleviate the UK's air capacity problems.
Boris Johnson says expansion at there should be reconsidered as it is a better option than Heathrow.
He said: "You should see the map of the extra noise over London that will be produced by a third runway, you should see the modelling that TfL have done on the traffic impacts of vehicular pollution.
"One of the things that interests me about Crossrail Two (which will see trains run from Shenfield to Maidenhead, in Berkshire) is that it does open up the possibilities of Stansted.
"The Airports Commission under Howard Davies was very precipitate in ruling expansion at Stansted and other options will have to come back into play at some stage."
Expansion at Stansted has already been rejected by the Davies Commission into Airport Capacity.
A report into airport expansion is due to be released in the next few weeks.
