Select Committee on Transport Written Evidence

Supplementary memorandum submitted by BAA Limited (PEAT 07A)

  In response to the additional requests from the Committee, I have provided the information below.

  Q536: The outline business case prepared by Atkins on behalf of the Airtrack Forum says that the Airtrack proposal would remove 5000 cars per weekday from local roads in the morning peak (defined as a three hour period).

  This is the list of those local authorities that we know are positively supportive of the Airtrack project. For the sake of completeness, I have put in brackets where I have been able to identify written policy support, as opposed to agreement to support via recommendations in committees etc.

    —  Surrey County Council (LTP and Structure Plan); Hampshire County Council (LTP); Runnymede Borough Council; Reading Borough Council; Woking Borough Council; Guildford Borough Council (specifically in draft LDF); Bracknell Forest Council (LTP); Wokingham Council (LTP);

  The joint LIP drawn up by the London Boroughs under the South and West London Transport Conference (SWELTRAC) specifically supports Airtrack, thus the following can be included in the "number and names" supporting Airtrack:

    —  London Borough of Richmond; London Borough of Hounslow; London Borough of Hillingdon; London Borough of Wandsworth; London Borough of Sutton; London Borough of Croydon; London Borough of Merton; Royal Borough of Kingston; Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.

    —  We also have letter from The Mayor Of London and Transport for London in support.

  Q567-9: We do not keep the data requested in questions 567-9. The incident of assault on security staff is so rare that individual incidents are not recorded.

  Additional Information: The additional information requested by the Committee on revenues from retail and refreshments, and the proportion of total terminal space given to those services, is attached separately in my email in the form of an Excel document.

  If I can be of any further assistance to the Committee please do not hesitate to let me know.
