Airport Railway Line Inertia

My message today to the NI Government is: Hurry up and build a rail connection to Aldergrove Belfast International Airport. Do it now, not in two years' time.

The only reason the airport bosses don't want it is because they are generating profits from their car parks. In the long term, though, a rail link must be in everyone's best interests for a variety of factors.

Aldergrove's car parks are probably the dearest anyway. I haven't used them for many years for that very reason. It's mainly used by business people spending their companies' money, I assert.

A rail link directly to the terminal at Aldergrove makes sense. Get on with it now.
