Complementing Reading’s already excellent road and rail services, the Elizabeth Line (from 2019) will connect the town directly to London’s West End, City and Docklands.

In addition, the proposed Western Rail Link to Heathrow scheme will halve the travel time to Heathrow airport to just 28 minutes.
