Who’s up for a new airport in London? Yes I agree with you there is no space to house a full functioning airport since London is relatively small when compared to the amount of people that live/visit here. What is the solution then? Well engineering consultancy Beckett Rankine have come up with a brilliant yet costly answer to this problem. They have revealed a proposal for a £40 billion floating airport on the Thames estuary with the aim to take some of the stress away from London’s existing airports. The proposed floating airport would be a stone throw away taking just 40 minutes on the underground from central London and theoretically should and would be able to operate 24-hours a day as there are no nearby homes who would be affected by the noise. Do you think this is a good idea?
