Western Rail Link to Heathrow is a major national railway infrastructure project. It will introduce a service of 4 trains per hour between Reading and Paddington via Heathrow Terminal 5. The service will run in a new twin bore tunnel from Langley station. The project will improve transport links from the west and reduce congestion, especially at Paddington and in the Heathrow area.
