Reading Council Welcome Crossrail Extension


Reading Borough Council has welcomed news that Crossrail will extend to Reading. It follows repeated calls by the Council to make Reading the final calling point of the vital new rail link, rather than Maidenhead.

These included:
• Providing much-needed additional rail capacity to Reading and the wider Thames Valley, meaning fewer delays and less overcrowding for passengers
• Acknowledging Reading as a key, major employment centre and destination in the South East
• Making best use of the new Reading Station redevelopment, which brings with it new platforms, increased capacity and provision for a future Crossrail link
