Transport improvements for Thames Valley

The Autumn Statement confirmed that the Reading Station improvements will be completed a year early by 2015. By the following year there will electric train services to Oxford, Newbury and Bristol.

The Coalition government has announced a plan to expand capacity on the M3 in Surrey which serves people to the south of the Wokingham district, through a “managed motorway” scheme which includes hard shoulder running.

I have been pressing for more road and rail capacity into and out of the Thames Valley area, as overcrowding and congestion is a problem.
