The Company

The Windsor Link Railway (WLR) when built will be the first privately funded addition to the core network for over 100 years.

It is a for-profit company but it is not just about profit; its social aims include preserving our heritage, improving our environment, improving standards of living for local residents, increasing social mobility and creating economic growth and employment.

The company is currently working on forming a joint venture that will bring various stakeholders together, from both the public and private sectors, to take the project forward.


To provide a range of environmental, social and economic benefits to the UK, Windsor and the surrounding regions
