More delays to the building of the lifts and new footbridge at Theale station.

It has now been decided that the project to build a new footbridge and lifts will be carried out by Network Rail rather than Great Western Railway (First Great Western as was). This is because Network Rail will be carrying out a lot of other work at the station in connection with the electrification and new trains. This work will include extending the platforms.

Unfortunately, Network Rail will be re-tendering the project because of the length of time since the last tenders were received. Network Rail are hoping to have finished the re-tendering by mid March and to start work soon after that.

We are trying to schedule a meeting with Network rail and GWR next month to discuss the situation.
