WLR connects Farnborough, Camberley and Basingstoke to Heathrow, dramatically improving journey time reliability
The same link that connects to Heathrow would allow Crossrail to be easily extended to the M3 corridor.
With the motorways full and back roads designed for a more rural age, electric rail makes an environmentally friendly alternative
In addition to helping the environment, better train links will reduce pressure on the roads, making car journeys better too
The WLR aims to be privately financed. This would reduce the burden on the taxpayer. Also, giving private investors a stake in the operation of the new transport infrastructure creates an incentive for them to make maximum use of the capital employed, meaning potentially more services for residents as well as for downward pressure on costs and hence fares
