Engineering work is taking place between London Paddington and Hayes & Harlington, closing some lines.

As a result, there are a number of alterations to services between 22:00 and 01:00 each night. Trains will be amended or diverted, and may take slightly longer than usual.

The 23:51 London Paddington to Reading service will not call at West Ealing or Hanwell stations. Customers should use alternative services.

The 00:17 Henley-on-Thames to Reading service will terminate at Twyford. Customers should change here for rail connections to Reading.
