  • Bristol Temple Meads to Didcot Parkway/Oxford
  • Newbury to Exeter and mainline stations in Devon and Cornwall
  • Theale to Newbury/Bedwyn
  • Didcot Parkway to Oxford and stations to Worcester
  • London Paddington to Maidenhead

Replacement buses will run on the following routes:

  • Reading to Maidenhead
  • Reading to Reading West, Theale, Newbury
  • Reading to Tilehurst, Pangbourne, Goring & Streatley, Cholsey, Didcot Parkway
  • Reading to Reading West, Mortimer, Bramley, Basingstoke
  • Slough to Newbury
  • Maidenhead to Twyford
  • Twyford to Wargrave, Shiplake, Henley-on-Thames
  • There is also work taking place between Bristol Parkway and Cardiff on these dates.
