£20m Reading Green Park Station Opens To The Public

Reading Green Park Station welcomed passengers on 27th May.

The new station has two platforms, two car parks, a bus interchange, a taxi rank and cycle parking facilities.

It is Reading's first new station since the opening of Reading West on 1 July 1906 and has been built by the council, Network Rail and Great Western Railway.

Half-hourly services will run north to Reading and south to Basingstoke.

The station will also help to ease congestion on the A33 road and unlock growth potential in the south of Reading.

Reading Borough Council previously said the station would provide another option for football fans heading to Reading FC's Madejski Stadium on match days.


The station includes:Two fully-accessible platforms

An overbridge providing access to both platforms via stairs and lifts

A bus interchange and cycle parking facilities

Two car parks (managed by Reading Borough Council), including 12 blue badge spaces and drop-off parking

A ticket hall, complete with toilets, ticket gates and ticket machines

Live train departure screens

Help points
