Wokingham is to have a new station with better shops, waiting areas and information displays.
A new footbridge will link both platforms and provide step free access from the main station entrance. A new access road will be built and a new interchange will provide improved links with other public transport. The improvements
at the station are being delivered by the Network Rail and South West Trains Alliance. Says Tim Shoveller, who heads the alliance,
‘The new station in Wokingham will make a huge difference to the thousands of passengers who use the railway in the town every day. As well as providing a safe and reliable train service, we want to improve facilities and make
our stations better and more attractive places for passengers. Once complete, Wokingham will be a modern and fit for purpose station which will serve the town for many years to come.’
To complement the station improvements, additional services are planned between Wokingham and London Waterloo from summer 2014.
