Private railway to Heathrow from Waterloo [Times]





Date: 20/03/2018

A new privately built railway line would be constructed into Heathrow from Waterloo station in London under government plans to expand Britains rail network without using taxpayer money upfront. Chris Grayling, the transport secretary, will announce today that a new private operator will be invited to build the eight-mile link from Britains busiest railway station to the mainline near its busiest airport outside the usual scope of Network Rail, the state-funded infrastructure company.
