Left In A Siding: The Rail Link That Could Make Heathrow Greener

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on the Guardian.

The article makes a powerful case forvthe building of the Heathrow Southern Railway.

It is a must read.

I can never understand, why the government hasn’t backed this scheme.

  • It creates a four trains per hour service between Heathrow and Waterloo via Staines and Clapham Junction
  • It creates an extension of Heathrow Express to Basingstoke, Guildford and Woking.
  • The extended Hethrow Express creates a much needed commuter route into Paddington.
  • Few properties would be affected by the new railway.

But above all, it will be built with private money.
