Alok is a strong supporter of Heathrow Airport, which helps businesses to export and brings jobs and business investment to Reading and the Thames Valley.
Department for Transport projections indicate that all airports in the South East of England will be full by 2030 and the Government has tasked the Airports Commission to find a solution to this problem.
Achievements to date:
Alok will continue to support Heathrow Airport and the jobs and investment it brings to Reading.
“Heathrow is a vital economic asset, which helps support many jobs across the Thames Valley. Ten percent of the UK’s economic output is generated in the western wedge area around Heathrow and so it is in everyone’s interest to see the airport continue to thrive. Reading would particularly benefit from Heathrow’s plans to expand, especially following the recent announcements about Western Rail Access to Heathrow and Crossrail, which will both speed up travel between Reading and Heathrow.”
