The NewsEditor

The Guardian reports that the CrossRail scheme may be extended to service Reading, under plans being considered by rail Minister Tom Harris.

Department for Transport sources warned that safeguarding the Reading to Maidenhead route will not guarantee that the extension will be built. However, the Crossrail bill will not need to be amended and it is understood that the extension will not increase the cost of the project significantly.
