To prepare for the electrification of the railway lines around Reading there will be a substantial number line closures at Reading Station over the weekend 16-17 September affecting the majority of routes into the station. This work is unfortunately scheduled during our University arrivals weekend, however we are confident that this should cause only minimal disruption as those welcoming new students have prepared their arrivals advice to deal with this. New and returning students (and staff) please ensure you plan your journeys carefully to avoid experiencing delays.
Further line closures will be taking place on Sunday mornings until Christmas time.
Please see the attached leaflet from GWR for full details of the closures. Reading Station closures Sept 2017
We look forward to welcoming you back for the start of term, have a safe journey.
