Plans to improve rail connections between London, Cambridge and Stansted Airport were announced today (February 20).
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson and Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne made the announcement as part of their plan to support economic growth in London over the next 15 years.
Johnson and Osborne vowed to establish a West Anglia task force, a group that will look at ways to improve connections between London Liverpool Street and Stansted Airport. The project aims to provide faster and more frequent train services and better access to Stansted Airport.
The Task Force will consist of the Department for Transport, Network Rail and the London Stansted Cambridge Consortium (LSCC). They are expected to present their findings in Spring 2016.
