I wish to object to Aquind's choice of landing spot insomuch as they have chosen to make landfall on the most densely populated Island in the UK and will cause massive traffic upheaval on one of the City's three access routes. They chose not to utilise adjacent mainly rural Hayling Island with a 20,000 pop against Portsea Island 180,000+ population. Also failing to utilise a disused railway branch line which runs the length of Hayling Island. I wish to take part in this process because I am of the opinion that choosing Portsea Island as the landing point for the overseas cable is the worst possible choice being the most densely populated Island in the UK with limited road access which will be severely disrupted when works are in progress, given that there are more rural areas available causing far less disruption
