BAA have today (11 April 11) announced that they are withdrawing the Airtrack TWA, the application to build the railway line from Heathrow to Staines.
BAA's statement says "“We’ve listened to the concerns raised by local residents about the impact of Airtrack and worked hard to try and resolve issues including level crossings. Despite our considerable efforts, including discussions with Network Rail and the local highway authorities, we have been unable to develop solutions which fully address these concerns.
"“The project has also been affected by the comprehensive spending review and the likelihood that there will be no public sector funding [...] in the current economic climate, Heathrow Airport is unable to justify meeting the full cost of the project and unfortunately we have no option but to withdraw Airtrack’s Transport and Works Act Order application"
