Heathrow Terminal 5 station


Heathrow Terminal 5 station

Heathrow Terminal 5 station is a shared railway station at London's Heathrow Airport, and opened on March 27 2008. Designed by architects HOK International in conjunction with Rogers, Stirk, Harbour & Partners, the station is staffed by Heathrow Express and ICTS staff unlike the underground stations at Heathrow Terminal 4 and Heathrow Terminals 1-3.

Although situated underground, parts of its roofing are made of translucent ETFE laminate panels, allowing natural daylight to flood down both ends of all six platforms.

*Piccadilly Line: half the trains on the Heathrow branch terminate here, via Hatton Cross and Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3. The other half run via Hatton Cross, Heathrow Terminal 4 and Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3, and back to Hatton Cross.
*Heathrow Express: terminates here. This service replaced the Express service to Terminal 4, which instead became the terminus for Heathrow Connect.

Future links

In addition to the above rail links, the T5 Rail Station also has two safeguarded "heavy rail" platforms for use by a west-facing connection to the National Rail network. This proposed link via a new station at Staines High Street is called Heathrow Airtrack and would offer half-hourly services to London Waterloo, Reading, Woking and Guildford. BAA have published as part of the Airtrack consultation that they also want to extend the Heathrow Express to a new platform at Staines railway station.
