Crossrail stretches from Berkshire in the west to as far east as Shenfield in Essex and also takes in spurs to Heathrow Airport in west London and to Abbey Wood in south east London.
Transport Minister Stephen Hammond said once Crossrail services began across the whole line in 2019, passengers travelling to London from Reading and other Thames Valley stations would be able to reach more destinations across London without the need to change at Paddington.
Transport for London has confirmed the Crossrail project will be extended to Reading. With Reading and Twyford now on the Map, Crossrail will call at 40 stations.
