An £850 million scheme to redevelop Reading Station is a third complete. The first of five new platforms, station entrances and a new train depot are starting to take shape.

It is the biggest scheme of its kind in the country and is aimed at easing overcrowding and cutting delays at the worst bottleneck on the network. The project should be complete in 2015. Mike Pearse reports.
