Public urged to provide their views on proposed rail link to Heathrow

Public urged to provide their views on proposed rail link to Heathrow as deadline for feedback approaches


Rail is urging residents and businesses to provide their views on plans for a new link connecting the rail network from the west to London Heathrow, ahead of the latest deadline for feedback of Monday 4 April.

The proposed link forms part of Network Railís £40bn Railway Upgrade Plan to provide a bigger, better, more reliable railway for passengers. Subject to planning permission, the link includes a 5km tunnel from the Great Western Main Line to Heathrow Terminal 5, enabling passengers throughout the west to travel directly to the airport from Reading, Twyford, Maidenhead and Slough, without the need to change at London Paddington. This will mean faster, more convenient journeys for passengers, with travel times expected to be around 26 minutes from Reading and seven minutes from Slough.

Shorter, more direct journeys to and from London Heathrow will also provide a significant opportunity for businesses across the Thames Valley, M4 corridor, south west and South Wales, enabling these businesses to save time and money, increasing their productivity and helping to deliver economic growth in these regions.
[...]

Residents and businesses who would like to comment on the latest plans for the proposed rail link can do so via the project website, by calling 03457 114141, or by filling in one of the consultation leaflets that were distributed at the recent events.
I no longer have a need to travel to Newbury and I avoid LHR like a plague, but other SLF (and I suppose crews) may wish to provide their comment.

There's no reason to comment as no-one is against it - what happened was the NR decided to slip the decision by a year because of cost overrruns everywhere else

They suddenly announced the "consultaton" at the same time as the delay in starting work -or rather going for planning permisison -which the local authority fully support. It only affects TWo houses.................
