More chaos on the tracks



GWR has announced that there will be at least nine weeks of disruption between March and November.

The disruption will mean no trains will run between Pewsey and Theale, with passengers having to travel on rail replacement services.

According to GWR the impacted dates are:

  • Monday 12 to Thursday 15 March

  • Monday 23 to Thursday 26 April

  • Monday 14 to Thursday 17 May

  • Monday 4 to Thursday 7 June

  • Monday 9 to Thursday 12 July

  • Monday 16 July to Sunday 5 August

  • Tuesday 28 to Thursday 30 August

  • Monday 8 to Thursday 11 October

  • Monday 19 to Thursday 22 November

​The work is to allow for the introduction of new Intercity Express Trains, plus the electrification of the route between Reading and Newbury, meaning journeys will be quicker and seating capacity will be increased.
