The new PM’s comments on WLR

WLR welcomes the new Prime Minister, Theresa May, who is also the local MP for Maidenhead.

This is what she said about the Windsor Link Railway:

Good train services from Maidenhead and Twyford to London are crucial, both for commuters who live in the local area and for local businesses. That’s why I welcome proposals from the Windsor Link Railway company, which could potentially provide much quicker journey times to south London and Waterloo. These have the additional advantage of being privately-led, reducing the burden on taxpayers as well as offering a new procurement model for infrastructure. This could potentially lead to billions of pounds of savings across the national network, offer more competition and break out of the cycle of ever-increasing passenger fares – making things easier for hard-working families.
