Shadow Transport Secretary Maria Eagle MP on HS2 spur to LHR: "We should be getting a link to Heathrow as early as possible." @itvlondon
The proposed spur to Heathrow has been put on hold pending the results of Sir Howard Davies' review of future airport capacity - which is not due to give a final report until the summer of 2015.
Instead passengers heading to the world's busiest airport will have to change onto the new London east-west Crossrail service for an 11-minute transfer to terminals.
