New link for Heathrow to Great Western

A new £500m link between Heathrow Airport and the Great Western Main Line is part of the Coalition Government’s recently announced rail investment programme.

The link would run from the Great Western Main Line near Slough to the airport and could be open by 2021, cutting journeys to the west country by around half an hour.

Transport Secretary Justine Greening said in a statement: “We are providing funding for a new rail line from the Great Western Main Line near Slough to Heathrow which could provide significantly improved connections from the Thames Valley, the West of England and Wales to the airport.”
