Network Rail is looking to promote a new rail link to Heathrow Airport which would provide direct rail access from Reading and the West of England.
Carter Jonas is instructed on behalf of Network Rail to lead the promotion of DCO powers to create a new link into Heathrow, improving the accessibility of Heathrow from the West of England. We have provided initial land referencing advice to enable Network Rail to carry out public consultations on the various scheme options.
We are also providing land access for ecological and engineering surveys required for the development of the scheme. Going forward we will be supporting Network Rail through the promotion of a DCO Application including valuation and acquisition advice.
