WLP calls for West London Line to run to Gatwick again

The West London Strategic Transport Group (WLSTG) has called for improvements to the West London Line in a letter to the Dept for Transport (DfT), in response to the South Central Franchise Consultation.

They call for direct services to be reinstated between West London and Gatwick Airport, for all trains to stop at Wembley Central, "effective levels of service" for Shepherds Bush and the new Imperial Wharf station, and the extension of the service northwards to Milton Keynes.

Suresh Kamath, of LB Hounslow, wrote the letter on behalf of WLSTG, which acts for the West London Partnership – which comprises the Borough Council Leaders and Chief Executives of the West London Alliance (Boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon and Hounslow), directors of West London Business and representatives of the West London Network of voluntary and community organisations, the Learning and Skills Council and the health sector.
