Heathrow Airport Western Rail Link Due To Open In 2021

Plans for a new rail link was presented by Network Rail, it would connect London Heathrow International Airport with the Great Western main line. Network Rail has delineated proposals to build a 5 km long tunnel from Heathrow’s Terminal 5 to a new junction between Iver and Langley stations. The proposals came as a response to calls from MPs.

The new railway would enable passengers coming from South Wales and the West Country to travel directly to the airport without having to pass first through central London.

The line is due to open in 2021.
