Reading station

Reading Station requires relatively little work to facilitate the new Elizabeth line services, but will benefit from new signage, help points and customer information screens.


Reading station is now step-free from platform to street.

When the full route opens, four Elizabeth line trains an hour (six an hour at peak times) will allow passengers to travel right through central London without having to change trains. Two Elizabeth line trains an hour (four an hour at peak times) will run between Maidenhead and Reading.

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