Access to high quality international air travel is vital for business in the capital.

A major new rail link connecting south-west and north-east London, via a tunnel beneath central London, is recommended today in a new report by London First. The new line, Crossrail 2, would transform journeys for commuters from the south-west and the north-east, including Wimbledon, Kingston, Twickenham, Hackney, Islington, Tottenham, Cheshunt and Hertford East. It would also provide essential relief to major London interchanges, including Euston, Victoria and Clapham Junction, and reduce pressure on congested Tube lines. In some cases, journey times would be more than halved.
