Gloucestershire to Heathrow rail trip could be cut to just an hour  Image

25th June 2018
Gloucestershire to Heathrow rail trip could be cut to just an hour

A consultation by Network Rail ended on June 22nd with a view to cutting 30 minutes off the journey time from the county's London-line stations: Cheltenham Spa, Gloucester, Stonehouse, Stroud and Kemble.
As well as being great news for holiday-makers, it could be good news for the Gloucestershire housing market as the county becomes ever-more accessible.

The proposed new 6.5km rail link would allow passengers throughout the West, and beyond, to travel directly to Heathrow Airport from Reading and Slough, without having to change at London Paddington.
It would deliver a faster, frequent, more reliable direct train service and help to reduce congestion and pollution on the M4, M25 and other nearby roads.

If approved, the Transport Secretary will announce the change in 2019.
