Property Prices to rise 25% on new rail route

According to GVA, one of the UK’s largest independent property consultants, property prices along the Crossrail route will increase by 25%. That’s great news for towns such as Maidenhead and Slough.

It’s also great news for Windsor as it demonstrates the value that can be created by better transport infrastructure, not just for jobs but also for house owners. The Windsor Link Railway would have an even greater effect on house prices in Windsor with the triple benefits of faster links to south London, a link to Heathrow and an extension of Crossrail to Windsor, all for a measly (in transport terms) £100 million.
