Our transport correspondent Mike Pearse has been following the refurbishment of Reading Station as part of a £900m investment in the railway network. His report includes an interview with Dan Panes from First Great Western.
Major delays and cancellations at Reading after the weekend engineering works over ran.
Services are running but many are late.
The station had been closed for four days to allow work to be completed for the first phase of the new station to open.
Services are now running but delays continue.
A broken down train near Pangbourne is adding to the problems.
Rail commuters will once again be able to catch trains from Reading this morning. The station has been closed since Thursday night, while thousands of staff have been working to upgrade the tracks. A reduced service will run for the rest of this week.
It's the biggest construction project in the south and at a cost of almost £1 billion should bring to an endmisery for millions of rail passengers a year.
Reading station is now so busy it can no longer cope. The solution is the biggest ever upgrade project of its type with new buildings, a massive train depot and five extra platforms.
If you travel through the station from Paddington, Gatwick, Southampton, Newbury, Swindon, Oxford or Banbury you are certain to have been delayed.
Engineering work has now reached the halfway stage with 1,200 people now on site.
