Network Rail completes Reading station upgrade

UK-based rail operator Network Rail has completed the renovation and upgrade of the Reading station, which will provide the passengers a bigger, better station to travel.

Forming the first part of an 11-day programme of upgrades over the Easter weekend, the upgraded station now features two new entrances, four new platforms and a new 110-metre long, 30-metre-wide passenger bridge, with escalators and lifts providing step-free access to the new platforms.

Apart from that the upgraded station will provide more space, easier access to platforms, and new passenger information screens.

In order to improve the efficiency and timings for customers, the new platforms feature two sections, named as A and B, to enable trains of varying lengths to occupy different ends of the platform at the same time. Each now has an escalator and step-free access to the new footbridge, with the existing platforms due to follow suit by 8 April.

Reading station is used by 14 million passengers annually, with numbers predicted to more than double to 30 million by 2030. The station elements of the project are due for final completion by February 2014. All work is scheduled to be completed by 2015.
