Mission impossible: Theale to Newbury by public transport today

There were long delays westbound on the A4 between Theale and Aldermaston this morning. This was caused by the fact that both bridges over the railway at Aldermaston are closed (they are being raised to allow for the overhead power lines when the line is electrified). This caused severe delays to the Jetblack 1 bus.

Also this morning, trains between Theale and Newbury were suspended because a train had hit a person in Thatcham. Trains were replaced by buses, but these were delayed by the above traffic jam!

All the problems were resolved by mid-day.
