Proposed Heathrow Rail Link

Just before the most recent local election all WBC Councillors were invited to a session regarding a proposed rail link from Woking to Heathrow. I was one of the handful that attended and was enthusiastic about what I saw.

I think this would really benefit Woking economically and the residents by having a rail route that doesn’t require a bus or bouncing out of London.

The proposals may be read here.

The consultation into Heathrow expansion will kick off soon, and my personal view is that if Heathrow is to be expanded, then as a side project improving our access to Heathrow is essential.
