The Department has begun working on the recommendations of the Market Sounding Findings Report published in December 2018 which found significant market appetite for financing and delivering a Southern Rail Link to Heathrow (SRLtH) but did not find a feasible proposal able to progress without Government support. We are committed to doing this work as quickly as possible, following which we intend to set out further engagement opportunities to all interested parties.
