Engineering work is taking place between Slough and Maidenhead from 23:45 Saturday until 08:15 Sunday, closing all lines.

As a result, trains will be unable to run between these times. A replacement bus service will operate between Slough and Maidenhead, with amended services running between London Paddington and Slough and also between Maidenhead and Reading.

Project Information:

The Crossrail Project is building the Elizabeth line to link Reading and Heathrow in the west with Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east, via new 21km tunnels under central London. This will increase London's rail capacity, cut passenger journey times across the city, encourage regeneration and generate significant employment opportunities.

This project is part of the London Railway Upgrade Plan, creating new connections and increasing capacity in peak hour by 30%.
