Whitley Pump reader Andrew Coltman sent us some photographs of the site of Green Park railway station on the line between Reading and Basingstoke. It looks like the land has been cleared ready for building to commence.
The planning application for the station was approved by the Reading Borough Council (RBC) planning applications committee in September 2019. The £20million project is being led by RBC but the station and platforms are also partly within West Berkshire and partly Wokingham.
St Edward, part of the Berkeley Homes Group is building apartments and houses in Green Park village and waterfront apartments at Bankside Gardens. Prices for apartments start at £278,000 and houses from £495,000.
RBC expects that the station will reduce road traffic on the A33 and will serve Green Park and the Madejski Stadium. Originally envisaged for 2010, according to Green Park signage, the station is now expected to open in 2021.
