Not unreasonably, after 5 years of blight, there will be relief for some at being unblighted by the kindly and considerate Transport Sec. It has perhaps slipped his memory, having been simply chief whip at the time, that the Heathrow spur was not about Heathrow’s expansion (blocked at the time by the coalition) but so that passengers for Birmingham and Manchester did not need a connecting flight. It was of course a totally fatuous argument which can now be quietly dropped.
Crossrail itself does not improve connectivity as well as it should to Heathrow as, for air passengers to and from the West, a change is required at Hayes & H, where they will no doubt having to lug on to already well loaded trains.
Of course again, for the Westerners, there is supposed to be the main line connection to Heathrow in plan or can that now be quietly dropped?

Does this mean that the Tring – Wormwood Scrubs link to connect WCML commuters with Crossrail is also cancelled?
