The Government has delayed plans to link HS2 to Heathrow
The plan was for a direct link. Now it says the plan will form part of a review into the future of airports in the south.
However there will be an interchange on the Great Western line between Reading and Paddington near to Acton in London.
In a statement the Government said:
"HS2 will connect to Heathrow Airport from the first day that Phase One opens via a fast 11-minute Crossrail link at the new Old Oak Common station.
"Subject to the findings of the Airports Commission report on maintaining the UK’s international hub connectivity, HS2 could also be extended to serve Heathrow directly."
