Construction on the new £20 million Green Park railway station, which began in Spring 2019 and sits on the Reading to Basingstoke line, is progressing well.
From the video footage available HERE so far what has been delivered includes:
- 2 x 150m of platforms;
- A new fully accessible station building;
- A new overbridge, providing fully accessible access to both platforms, via stairs and lifts;
- A bus interchange and cycle parking facilities;
- 2 car parks, including 12 blue badge spaces and drop off parking.
- Over the coming weeks, work will continue on site to complete the final finishes to the station, including toilet facilities, accessible baby change, ticket vending machines and wayfinding signage.
A commissioning period, involving the train operating company and Network Rail, is due to commence shortly which will be the final stage of the project prior to entering service and opening for public use from the summer of 2022.
Tony Page, Reading Borough Council lead for strategic environment, planning and transport comments, “when operational, Green Park station will form an integral part of Reading’s ever-growing sustainable transport infrastructure with more homes, businesses and leisure developments planned.”
