It occurs to me that a simple, but expensive, civil engineering project could solve many problems for the UK.
Having been active in objecting to the development of Stansted Airport and a supporter of the abandoned Maplin project, could an airport be built off the Norfolk coast to relieve the South East of ever increasing inland airport expansion?
This new airport could be aligned with the coast with a new sea protection wall enclosing rail and road access, thereby having the dual function of infrastructure for the airport and coastal defences for Norfolk.
The bonus would be saving the Broads for pleasure and tourism and vast areas of fertile soil to provide food crops for this country. These could become very valuable in the near future!
A daft idea, or joined-up thinking?
