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.
