Hello everyone!
Heathrow is already well service by rail connection. I think its not a problem. Heathrow airport is also provide the

cheap airport parking service so that's why rail connection with the Heathrow express is good. I have seen one site by this i know about heathrow airport parking.

Wasn't there some proposals to extend the High Speed Branch line from Heathrow to Gatwick? If the line to Heathrow was built and extended to Gatwick it could allow better use of both airports and expand London's airlinks.

How many changes of train are needed to get from Heathrow to the HS2 line?

There is a train from Heathrow to Paddington, but not to IIRC St Pancras which would be the HS2 terminus.

Make sure you go over the footbridge to the Hammersmith and City/ Circle platform, trains go direct to StPancras. If you go past the buffers to the Circle/ District you have to change platforms at Edgware Road which does not have lifts or ramps.
