Have we got the money to be spending billion on new transport links in and around london? I love london but i'd like to see more money spent on the other cities and not on a new fancy airport. But thats just me

An addiction to cancer? Strange.

Probably best to wait until this is finished before judging it.

You Sir deserve a reward! A brilliant set of models that shows how dynamic and exciting the London skyline is becoming.

It is incredible that you cant even fit all of these clusters into one view! I personally love the fact that there are multiple clusters throughout the city and these models give a great impression of what can be expected.

There is simply no other city in Europe that even compares to this!

Wow!!!

Absolutely staggering, well done Sir!

PS - any chance of city view looking east (towards the city)? i'm interested to see what the city cluster looks like with new Lime Street and Gothic City towers integrated into skyline?

Wow thank you very much my friend very kind of you to say. Yes that is no problem I can do a view of the city looking east ill put it up for you. Again thank you.

I've flown out of Heathrow a fair number of times and no matter where you're coming from, it's an absolute bitch to navigate. Cramped and confusing doesn't even begin to describe it.

Plus, it's not like the estuary is tucked away somewhere remote. If you're saying Heathrow is a gateway to the whole of the UK, then people using it from the north have no more or less distance to travel. If anything, being able to ignore London altogether and scoot around through Essex/Surrey would alleviate a lot of problems.

Heathrow is simultaneously the world's best and worst airport. Imagine how good the estuary one will be without artificial constrictions and decades of haphazard construction holding it back. Conservative estimates of 150 million passengers? By far the biggest in the world? That's good for the entire country, and any questions of accessibility are moot when the benefits are so vast.
Imagine sometime in the future, a new mega-air/spaceport located somewhere in the Nordic Sea, right above the channel off the shores of Britain, Holland, and Belguim on an artificial floating island. There should be highspeed-rail connections on bridges with all the massively populated areas. One from Amsterdam/Rotterdam, one from Köln and the Rhur-area in Germany. One from Bruxelles/Antwerp in belguim, one from Paris/Lille and last but not least one from London. All connected to this floating islands in the middle of the sea! There should be a massive futuristic city somwhere there too, to give housing to the millions people of Europe whose going to loose their homes when the water-level rises. All this should belong to a new contry slowly emerging out of the sea! Called something like "EUtopia" or maybe "Atlantia"!

^ What will that facade be made of? If it's aluminium, it'll hardly be that shiny. But it could still be very smooth looking.

Renderings are renderings. Even that cloudless sky is pretty fake.

The case for an estuary airport is fatally flawed because the cost to overcome those flaws is exorbitantly high.

Thankfully, SE9 posts mostly about London's magnificent skyline.

That must be why new airports on reclaimed land never happen anywhere in the world then.

Oh... Wait...

Not right now. It's completely cloudless over London today, as it was yesterday, as it will be tomorrow and the next day.

Canaletto's a great project. It's not very big, but it's one of the most attractive new designs in London. I'd love to have a flat there.
