BAA Heathrow Revenue Up - Investment Down

Tue Aug 07, 2007 8:39 pm

As if anyone needed any further evidence of where BAA's priorites lie, this Times article reports on the fact that investment in Heathrow is down 15% in the year since Ferrovial acquired BAA compared to the year before that. This is despite the fact that "...revenue from Heathrow has grown to £1.232 billion from £1.077 billion".

This all makes disgraceful reading. At what point do we say enough is enough? What can actually be done to prevent LHR and other BAA airports from becoming an even greater shame to the country than they already are?

I despair.
