Reading Green Park Station is set to open for public use on Saturday 27 May 2023.

Reading Green Park Station – the first station to open in Reading since Reading West in July 1906 – will provide improved sustainable travel options for local residents and businesses in the Green Park area, as well as fans attending events at the Select Car Leasing Stadium, home of Reading Football Club.

The station, built by Reading Borough Council, Network Rail and Great Western Railway (GWR), features:

  • Two 150m platforms;
  • A new fully accessible station building;
  • A fully accessible overbridge, providing access to both platforms, via stairs and lifts;
  • A bus interchange, taxi rank and cycle parking facilities;
  • Two car parks, including 12 blue badge spaces and drop-off parking and long-stay parking for commuters.

The station sits on the Reading to Basingstoke line, with half-hourly services running north to Reading and south to Basingstoke through the day.

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.

In addition to Reading Green Park Station, Reading’s public transport offer continues to go from strength to strength, with work on the transformation of Reading West Station continuing at pace and also due to complete this year and the recently completed Elizabeth Line now offering travellers to and from Reading modern trains and a seamless transition into central or east London without having to change to the tube at Paddington.
