Theale Rail Station Update – 17th October 2015

tracksFollowing a recent request by Theale’s Future (TF) for an update on the progress of the Theale Station project, there have been exchanges between Theale’s Future, Great Western Railways (the new name of the train operating company previously called “First Great Western”) and Network Rail.

In a nutshell, Network Rail is assuming control of the project from GWR, and a new tender process will be initiated with contractors to perform the work because the previously provided tenders/prices are now out of date. Network Rail envisages that the tender process should be completed by March 2016, shortly after whch they expect work to begin.
