Heathrow Southern Railway brings more trains to Heathrow Airport and creates a new route for commuters
Basingstoke/Guildford – Woking – Heathrow – Paddington
Trains would operate every half hour from Basingstoke, Farnborough, and Guildford, and every 15 minutes from Woking, to Heathrow, with journey times faster than road. Heathrow Southern Railway is more than just an airport rail link as after Heathrow these trains would continue to Old Oak Common and Paddington creating new connections to HS2 and the Elizabeth Line.
Heathrow – Staines –
Clapham Junction – Waterloo
Services would be fully integrated with the South Western network via Staines-upon- Thames, creating four high capacity, direct trains per hour between London Waterloo and Heathrow, half via Richmond and half via Hounslow. The addition of a bay platform at Staines would potentially allow the extension of Elizabeth Line services from Heathrow Terminal 5 to Staines-upon-Thames.
