Focus on Slough:

Thanks to Crossrail, commuter towns such as Slough are set to see property prices rise by around 35% by 2020, as 1.5 million more people are brought within a 45-minute commute of London.

Crossrail, also known as the Elizabeth Line, is a new railway that will create a door to door connection between key parts of London and commuter towns in the South East. When fully operational in December 2019 its fleet of 70, 200-metre long trains each carrying up to 1,500 passengers will mean a 10% increase to London’s rail capacity. This will have a significant and positive impact on the commute in, out and across central London, and as a result has already seen property prices appreciate in areas along its route as commuters have begun to take advantage of this improved access.

Figures already show that throughout 2017, Slough house price growth hit a 13.8% increase, while on average, house prices within a mile of Crossrail stations have risen by 66% since 2009.
