Construction on the new £20 million station began in Spring 2019 and is progressing well despite initial delays to the project caused by the pandemic.
As shown in the footage, so far we have delivered:
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.
Green Park Station will sit on the Reading to Basingstoke line and will be served by a half-hourly service north to Reading and south to Basingstoke through the day. It will consist of two platforms with disabled access and a multi-modal interchange with a surface level car park, bus stops, taxi rank and cycle parking.
We are leading on the construction, and 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 it receiving authorisation to enter into service. Green Park Station is expected to be open for public use during the summer of 2022.
When complete, the new station will help to alleviate queues on the busy A33 by offering an alternative sustainable mode of travel. It will significantly improve accessibility to the south Reading area where large-scale development is taking place, including the expansion of Green Park Business Park and Green Park Village.
