Southall – Brentford

Brentford to Southall link given funding boost

Councillors have agreed in principle to provide a further £1.8m towards proposals to operate three trains per hour on the freight line linking Brentford with Southall. A railway station would be created next to Transport Avenue.

The first stage of the GRIP 3 work will commence shortly and subject to the identification of further funding, GRIP 4 should be completed by the end of 2017.

Report backs Southall to Brentford link

A report has backed the creation of a passenger rail link on a freight line between Southall and Brentford. The link would connect Transport Avenue in Brentford, part of the Golden Mile, with the Crossrail station at Southall.

The link could be open in 2020.
