London City Airport’s CEO Robert Sinclair wants to extend Crossrail from Abbey Wood to Ebbsfleet in Kent and to create a station on the network at London City Airport.

He said: “I don’t know why it didn’t happen, it was long before my time.

“I suspect it was related to the fact at the time London City was a much smaller airport than it is now.

“I’m not sure the people at the time could quite see its potential or how transformational Crossrail could actually be.

“Crossrail to Ebbsfleet is such a great opportunity – it’s fundamentally sensible to connect multiple transport modes.”
