Matt Rodda for Reading East

Standing up for Reading

Bring Crossrail to Reading


I support Crossrail coming to Reading and I have campaigned for Reading to be the western terminus, rather than Maidenhead.

The rail link will bring jobs and investment to our town which are desperately needed after the longest recession and slowest recovery in recent history.

The Government announced it was giving in to calls for the link to be extended and the challenge is now for Crossrail to deliver a  semi-fast commuting service as well as a stopping one – to help hard pressed commuters.

This campaign continues earlier campaigning by Reading’s Labour council and the former Reading West Labour MP, Martin Salter.
