Crossrail brings fast commutes and new homes to West Drayton

This new scheme of 51 apartments in West Drayton could be a wise investment as Crossrail promises high-speed train links across London.
The future is looking far more promising for West Drayton, currently a dreary suburban outpost with the only significant advantages to living there being its cheapness and convenience - if you happen to work at Heathrow airport or a local business park.
West Drayton is set to become much better connected when Crossrail, the east-west train link across the capital, opens in 2018 as its station will be on the new route from Maidenhead to Canary Wharf and beyond, providing a speedy and direct commute to central London, the Square Mile and Docklands. As such, it has potential for price rises before the opening of the fast link.

Drayton Wharf is a new-build scheme of 51 apartments, along with a communal roof terrace and cafés, alongside the Grand Union Canal. Prices from £200,000. Call estate agent Cameron on 01895 444 424.
