Forget airports, sort the road works – message from London business leaders

An opinion poll of 760 London business leaders carried out by ComRes for the new LondonLovesBusiness website found an overwhelming preference for the next Mayor of London to concentrate on sorting out roadworks rather than trying to get a new airport runway built.

    I remember David Alton proposing something like this many years ago when he was a Liberal MP. I certainly think it warrants examination.
