I have now revised the heading of this topic, to emphasize that such infrastructure problems cause disruption elsewhere in the region.  Smiley

Hmmmm, only problem now is it suggests that disruption is elsewhere as a result, but not in the Thames Valley!

No easy answer - our moderator and admin team struggle with the best place for some threads.    The subject line is "Infrastructure problems in Thames Valley  ...." and I personally read that to mean that we're talking about infrastructure problems, and they're in the Thames Valley  Grin  Grin

As a moderator, I agree with grahame. As a member of the forum, I pay tribute to his hard work, which keeps things reasonably sensible.

I've just been looking at the OTT map for PAD and the boxes along P11 contain the words 'BUST ROOF SHUT'!

It was put down to signalling issues at Paddington... That's not quite the same thing I don't think  Grin

A very poor peak time service into Paddington for the second day running due to this,  compounded by problems further west resulting in a very patchy service through Reading.

Delays on the Thames Valley early morning. "No idea why" according to our driver's announcement but about 30 mins late into Paddington from Twyford.
