Festive rail passengers around Reading are to be hit with delays as the first part of a £400m revamp starts.

Network Rail said it was the best time to carry out the work which will see the station partially shut from late on Christmas Eve until 4 January.

A bus replacement service will operate but some rail services will be allowed to run at busy times.

The station will be remodelled by 2013 to include five more platforms and two additional entrances.

Network Rail said: "We're working closely with First Great Western and other train operating companies to minimise the impact of this work on your journeys.

"There will be a frequent, efficient, replacement bus timetable, and plenty of staff on hand to help you on your journey."
