A temporary motorcycle parking area has been installed next to sub-station N, which is opposite the west door of 4ES. The parking is available with immediate effect. Security apologise that it is not under cover, but it is the best that that can be found at present, in the short term. They also ask that any motorcyclists using the temporary parking area ensure that they have registered their motorcycle here in case of an emergency.
As part of the ongoing improvement to the network, Great Western Railway will have some changes to their services over the holiday period. The biggest change is that London Paddington will be closed to all rail services from Saturday 24 December to Thursday 29 December.
This means that GWR rail services will be starting and finishing at Ealing Broadway, where customers can make a connection to the underground or take scheduled bus services into London.
"Ealing Broadway does not have step-free access. We are therefore recommending that customers on our Bristol and South Wales services, who are travelling with heavy luggage, children, or who find steps difficult to change at Reading and use services from there to London Waterloo. This will mean a longer journey and we will be alerting customers to the changes well in advance so they can plan ahead."
Full details of the planned works can be found on the GWR website.
The motorcycle parking bays and bicycle bays opposite 2E in the underdeck will be suspended for a minimum of 4 weeks from Monday 17 October. Scaffolding already erected in this particular area has to be replaced with more robust scaffolding due to the urgent elevation works being conducted. All the relevant bay users will need to ensure that all cycles are removed before Monday morning. Apologies to all those affected by the disruption.
