aircraft heading for Manston. Hopefully we will be seeing a lot more in the future. I read an article yesterday the Roger Gale was extolling the virtues of Manston to play a bigger part in the extra capacity needed while the powers to be sort out Londons next airport ie Boris Johnson bonkers idea of Boris Island or the daft idea of Grain. If the powers want to do the sensible thing we will get Ramsgate Parkway Station to serve both the Airport, KLM Passengers and the Manston Green development. With that and the new houses going in at Westwood Cross Thanet is due a small population explosion. If the Parkway Station offers trains into London in a hour it would make sense for people to move to Ramsgate and commute into London. If the Government can spend Billions on the proposed HS2 rail link I feel that the Parkway Station would be a bargain and would make work for all involved. The Manston issue is here to stay for those who are anti and for those who like me who would love to see it go ahead I feel it is closer than ever.
