NR to ‘live Tweet’ Easter engineering work

Network Rail will be tweeting images and updates live from Reading over Easter, as it carries out a series of major improvement works on the Great Western Main Line.

The work involves installing new freight lines under the station viaduct to completely separate passenger and freight services.

There will be timetable changes and in some cases replacement bus services running on parts of the Thames Valley network over the Easter period because of the scale of the work being done.

Western Route Managing Director Patrick Hallgate said: “We are acutely aware that some of our work could inconvenience those who want to travel over the Easter period, which is why we want to be open and provide the public with live information about how we are using this time to make improvements to this part of the network.

The progress of the improvement work can be followed through the Twitter account @networkrailgwrm and the hashtag #greaterwest. Tweets about the work will start on the morning of April 3.
