Crossrail And Heathrow In Legal Dispute Over Fees

This title of this post is the title of an article in the Financial Times.

This dispute will run and run, as it is a gift to the lawyers.

As it is the greedy owners of Heathrow, won’t allow Crossrail trains to go directly to Terminal 5, which means you will have to use the Piccadilly Line or change trains.

But I think, that there are obstacles to Heathrow’s plans to rip-off passengers.

  • They still need to get Planning Permission for the Third Runway.
  • Transport for London will start to upgrade the Piccadilly Line in 2019 and new trains will arrive in 2022.
  • Heathrow Express will still only get you to Paddington at a rip-off price.

The other winner could be Gatwick, who seem to want to work with Transport for London, rather than fight with them.
