Reading station

Reading station requires relatively little work to prepare for the new Elizabeth line service.

From December 2019, two Elizabeth line trains an hour (four an hour at peak times) will allow passengers to travel right through central London without having to change trains.

Fast services currently operated by Great Western Railway will be unaffected by the introduction of the Elizabeth line services.
