Engineering work is taking place between Reading and Westbury, closing all lines.

Local services:

Local stopping services that run between London Paddington / Reading and Newbury / Bedwyn will be replaced by buses.

Replacement buses will run between Reading and Newbury (both fast and stopping), and also between Reading and Bedwyn.

Long distance services:

Long distance services that usually run between London Paddington and South West England will run to an amended timetable, and will be diverted between Reading and Westbury, not calling at Newbury or Pewsey. This diversion will extend journey times by up to 30 minutes.

Before 18:15, trains departing London Paddington will be retimed, and will depart up to 30 minutes earlier than usual.
