As the arguments of the future shape of the UK continue post Brexit, the UK government is pressing on with building the infrastructure that will support the country – whatever the outcome of the divorce talks with Brussels. This makes a lot of sense. Economic dynamism will be a condition of success in the future irrespective of the arrangements the UK has with its trading partners.
On the agenda are Crossrail 2 and HS2 but leading the way is the development of a third runway at the UK’s largest airport, Heathrow.
Heathrow’s third runway has been decades in the making but has now received the blessing and approval of the cabinet and parliament literally paving the way for a further 740,000 flights per year to enter London, allowing for a more global Britain, and improved economy in the long term.
