The design for a new railway station in Reading has been unveiled.

Green Park station will be built on the Reading to Basingstoke line near the Madejski Stadium as part of a multi-million pound scheme to improve transport networks across Berkshire.

Plans for the £6.4m station include a bus interchange, park and ride and a multi-storey car park.

The planning application will be decided by both Reading Borough Council and West Berkshire Council.

If approved, construction work would begin in October 2016.

It is part of a £21.4m batch of schemes agreed by the Berkshire Local Transport Body, and funded by the government.

Other schemes include road improvements in Newbury, Slough and Bracknell.
