BUS replacement services between Pewsey and Theale have been announced by Network Rail throughout 2018 as engineering work is carried out to electrify the route.

The work will be carried out to upgrade the track between Reading and Newbury on Monday March 12 to Thursday March 15, with further work planned on April 23 to April 26 and June 4 to June 7.

Further dates for temporary railway closures are due to be announced later on in the year.

During this time high-speed services from London to the West of England will continue to run by using a different route.

Passengers have been warned to expect these routes to be up to 30 minutes longer and depart at different times.
