UK: Heathrow has launched a new interactive rail journey map (click here to access the map), showcasing how services from Wales and around England to the airport are set to dramatically improve. The map includes journey times from 31 cities from as far North as Newcastle to as far South as Plymouth.

Significantly, between now and 2032, a raft of improvements including Crossrail, Western Rail Access, HS2 access via Old Oak Common and Southern Rail Access will be delivered to make it easier and quicker to get to Heathrow by rail.

Heathrow Surface Access

  • Crossrail: The full opening of Crossrail in 2019 will bring the heart of London’s financial district and much of East London within a 60 minute catchment area for Heathrow.
  • HS2: By 2032, Heathrow will be connected to the High Speed Rail network via a new passenger interchange at Old Oak Common providing fast access to the Midlands and improved connectivity to Northern England and Scotland.
  • Southern Rail access: This project will improve connectivity between Heathrow and South London, Surrey, Hampshire and the South Coast.
  • Western Rail access: Providing fast direct access to Heathrow by 2021 for passengers from Slough, Reading and the Thames Valley and further improve journey times to the South West and South Wales.
  • Piccadilly Line upgrades: Will deliver improved frequency and faster journey times.
