Reading Station Area Redevelopment (RSAR)
Client: Network Rail
Contractors Designers: Tata, Grimshaw - Architect
Form of Contract: NR14
Dates work carried out: 2011 – 2014
HOCHTIEF and Costain are working in Joint Venture on the £80 million station project. The station works are part of Network Rail’s wider Reading Station Area Regeneration (RSAR) Programme. The RSAR programme will not only substantially upgrade the existing station it will also remodel the track and signalling on the approaches. This will greatly increase its capacity and allow it to cater for predicted passenger numbers up to 2035.
Work involves the reconstruction of the station platforms, the construction of two new large station entrances and a 30m wide passenger transfer deck. At the completion of our work in February 2014 the station will have 15 platforms, with 9 of them being through platforms.
The package of works includes, but is not limited to the following:
All this work will be delivered whilst maintaining the existing station operations.
