£16 billion Crossrail project in Reading underway

More of the Crossrail project will be unveiled today.

Work is underway on the £16 billion pound scheme which will link Reading to Central London and the East, without the need to change at Paddington.

It is hoped to be completed by 2021.

It's the biggest rail upgrade scheme in the Thames Valley and as well as benefiting commuters, the project is also having an impact on the local housing market in areas along the route such as Twyford.
