Grant Shapps signals support for a third runway at Heathrow - Telegraph Up and coming poli Grant Shapps has signalled his support for a third runway - adjacent to the M4. News on HS2 (High Speed) has gone very quiet and was left out of the HLOS to boot. Greening who has done well for rail transport is mooted to be on the way out over her opposition. Boris J wants to build another London airport but out of the way and adjacent to HS1 - which would make it a great airport for rail links to France and Belgium. Personal view is that the transport infrastructure around Heathrow is knackered, there is just not the capacity, however a new airport is needed for the financial well being of the UK, therefore go with Boris.
