Railway station revamp approved in Wokingham

A Berkshire railway station could be replaced and a new access road built as part of plans approved by councillors.

Wokingham Borough Council said it would contribute £5.5m towards the scheme which would include rebuilding the town's station building.

An access road connecting Wellington Road and the A329 Reading Road would be built through the station's forecourt.

Improvements to the level crossing alongside the station are also planned.

The authority is now carrying out a feasibility study.

A public exhibition of the main proposals is due to take place later in the year, followed by a public consultation.

A completion date for the works is yet to be agreed and must be approved by the council, Network Rail and South West Trains.
