In only 4 districts (Altstadt, Bogenhausen, Trudering and Thalkirchen), a majority voted for the runway.
This referendum was specifically about whether the city of Munich would support the third runway in the shareholders´ meeting. The airport is going to continue its plans for the project regardless of the referendum, and the state government has reiterated its continued support.
|Actually the airport will continue to build from what I hear...|
|What does this mean, that the airport runway may still go ahead despite the people saying no? I was surprised to see Bogenhausen agree to it.|
