Future drivers of growth
The two biggest growth opportunities for Sunbury-on-Thames which will have effect from between 2 and 15 years time are the Heathrow Airport Expansion and Crossrail.
Heathrow Airport is only 5 miles away (11 minutes by car) and already a major influence on Sunbury-on-Thames’ employment, the planned expansion will drive the economy, regeneration and property prices around Sunbury-on-Thames to a massive degree over the medium to long term with over 77,000 additional jobs created in the immediate area and some £200 billion economic benefit to the UK economy.
Crossrail (called the Elizabeth Line) goes live in late 2018 and with a station at Heathrow Airport Terminal 4 only minutes away plus Sunbury Station to become a Crossrail 2 station over the next decade or so, the ‘Crossrail effect’ will be huge in Sunbury-on-Thames over many years to come. Construction for Crossrail 2 is expected to start from 2023 with the new line opening from the early 2030s and delivering over 200,000 jobs.
