News just released is that the Government has approved ‘in principle’ the funding for the new Isle of Scilly Link. As many will know from the news coverage and my blog posts this has been a long and contentious issue. The news was given in the House of Commons on the 26th Oct by the Rt Hon Philip Hammond MP, Sec of State for Transport.
Maybe now everyone will get together to make sure this project works. I think it is time to use the old saying and ‘bury the hatchet’ once and for all. I think this may take sometime though.
Sadly it comes at the same time that the helicopter link is still under threat with the Isle of Scilly Steamship Company not now supporting the move from Penzance Heliport to Lands End Airport. I do hope something is worked out as this would be another blow to Penzance
