Bridget and the TESTRAD Consortium introduce London Britannia Airport

12135_106_Elevated_Britannia-PANORAMA-5Volterra’s senior partner Bridget Rosewell formed TESTRAD  to research the infrastructure potential of the Estuary and has worked with a number of experts to develop the ideas for an airport based there. This scheme has been merged with that of global architectural design firm Gensler and the TESTRAD Consortium has responded to the call from the Airports Commission with plans for a new airport in the Thames Estuary to be known as London Britannia Airport. The six runway airport would position London as the gateway for Europe by offering travellers a hub airport able to operate around the clock, whilst minimizing disruption to London residents. The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, says: “This is further welcome argument in favour of the feasibility of having a new hub airport in the Thames estuary. With so many options available for a multi-runway hub airport in a new location, it would be folly for the Airports Commission to give countenance to the prospect of expanding Heathrow, the most noise-polluting airport in Europe.”
