CITY VIEWS: DO YOU THINK THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD PRIORITISE HIGH SPEED RAIL OR MORE AIRPORT CAPACITY?

JOE BATTLE | ANTARES
“Personally I think the high-speed rail, because there has never been a real problem with airport capacity, only a bit of hustle and bustle. A decent rail network around the UK would be fantastic.”

DAN SILVEY | AXA
“I think the government should favour high speed rail because it is a more substantial form of transport for the future. Eventually people won’t need to fly as much to get to places across Europe.”

ALAN WALSH | LLOYD’S OF LONDON
“The government needs to focus on airport capacity, as even in this economical environment people want to go abroad and flight tickets can be very cheap. Any extra money should be used to help the people in the inner city get around rather than longer commuting which doesn’t save much time.”
