Great Western Railway between Reading and Redhill / Gatwick Airport

TOC(s) affected
Great Western Railway

As a result of engineering work taking place between Reading and Reading West until 18:50, CrossCountry trains are being diverted via Wokingham and Guildford.

As less line capacity will be available between Reading and Guildford, the following Great Western Railway alterations will apply to the service:

The 10:48 / 12:48 / 14:48 / 16:48 Reading to Redhill trains will be re-timed to run a few minutes later throughout.

The 08:43 / 09:43 / 11:43 / 15:43 / 17:43 Redhill to Reading trains will depart from Guildford up to 15 minutes later than usual.

Please allow for extra time in your journey if you are travelling to Gatwick Airport.

Project Information:

The Great Western Route Modernisation project is the biggest investment in the Great Western railway since Brunel built it more than 150 years ago. Modernising the route will improve the experience of everyone who uses it and stimulate economic growth in the South West and beyond.

Network Rail are electrifying one of Britain's oldest and busiest railways, providing greener, more reliable journeys and improving connections across southern England and South Wales: London and Bristol, including Cardiff, Newbury and Oxford. This project is also part of the London Railway Upgrade Plan, creating new connections and increasing capacity in peak hour by 30%.
