I note that from December provisional Green Park (RGP) timings have been included in readiness

That looks minor, but involves a big operational change - a third unit throughout the day on the Reading-Basingstoke shuttle.

Which should improve timekeeping significantly as there will be substantial layover times.  Providing the crew can be found!

Well they are going to have to pull their finger out if there is going to be station.
I was down on the bridge overlooking the site last week. They have cleared, some weeks ago, some of the undergrowth where the Up platform would be. There appeared to be somebody in the bushes doing some wiring/cabling.

As with Worcestershire Parkway the timings will be in the system for as and when the station opens and in the meantime there will be a little sitting about waiting time at Mortimer, Reading West or Southcote Junction.

Timings for Reading Green Park now included in the schedules:

https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/search/advanced/RGP/2019/12/16/0000-2359?stp=WVS&show=all&order=wtt

Though Id be surprised if its ready for trains to stop during the validity of the December 2019 timetable.
