JLL’s head of South East Office Agency responds to launch of Western Rail Link to Heathrow consultation

James Finnis, head of South East Office Agency at real estate advisory firm JLL said: "A new rail link connecting the West to Heathrow will compliment Crossrail and will deliver a strategically important piece of infrastructure.  The link will further enhance the Western Corridor, in particular the towns of Slough, Windsor, Maidenhead and Reading.

"The Thames Valley is already a highly attractive proposition to both national and international corporates, with a mobile skilled workforce and high quality office stock with low total occupational costs relative to Central London locations.  This rail link will be an additional pull factor for companies considering a relocation, delivering an enhanced connection to Heathrow airport."
