Rail delays expected to run into evening rush-hour
3:49pm Tuesday 2nd April 2013 in News
DISRUPTION to train services between Oxford, Didcot, Reading and London Paddington is expected to continue until at least 5pm.
The problems began early this morning with a late finish to major engineering and signalling work carried out at Reading over the Easter weekend, which saw a new footbridge and extra platforms at the town's station brought into use.
Further disruption was caused by signalling problems and a train which broke down at Goring & Streatley during the morning peak.
As a result, trains and crews have been out of position for much of the day, causing delays of up to an hour at times and a series of cancellations on First Great Western and CrossCountry trains services.
