Reading Station and railway line will be closing from the 27 December to 3 January to begin a programme of multi-million pound improvement works.

While this will be of benefit to customers in the long term, it does unfortunately mean that there will be periods where we are unable to run services on the Reading line. This means anyone planning on travelling over the Christmas period to, from or through the Reading area will be affected and should try to plan their journey in advance.

We are doing everything we can to get you to your destination. We are running trains via diversionary routes and when this is not possible replacing trains with a bus replacement service.

  • Travelling from the West of England? Trains will run into London Waterloo
  • Travelling from South Wales and Bristol? Trains will run via Banbury and Oxford
