Monday 25th February 2019 saw Network Rail in partnership with Reading Borough Council mark the completion of a major upgrade to the Cow Lane railway bridges in Reading, as part of the major rail improvements the area has seen over the last decade. Take a look how this project unfolded over the last 8 years. Video credit Ryan Sheehan.
I was delighted to take part in the official opening of the new Cow Lane Bridge. It has been a long wait due to technical problems but it is great to see the new bridge open, and I’m pleased that it will make life easier for thousands of people in the Reading area.
