Re routing of trains are the going via Greenford to OOC direct on the single line or round via West Ealing? The Greenford signalman is going to be busy either way.

A bit of both I would imagine.

Exactly - and two years ago there were clear plans for rebuilding the A60 bridge.

Looking carefully through the three different GCR articles on this, I can find words that say:"We have to raise one million pounds, to put two previously recovered bridge decks in place by the end of 2015." and " On the northern section of the GCR, the bridge across the A60 also needs upgrading."

So why not explain - for the benefit of anyone who saw the earlier news - that the reused spans were going to be used on the A60 bridge, but that is now going to be upgraded a different way? If it's because the A60 bridge is on the GCR(N)'s side of the gap, it does make you wonder how well the two groups will co-operate, or even merge, after the link-up.
I think the reason why the bridge over the MML is happening and the A60 is not is due to NR having a project team in place this makes it easier for GCR to bridge that part of the gap to do the A60 I suspect means engaging with a County Council highways and the Highways Agency who are unlikely to have a project team in place

Apologies if this was covered elsewhere, but this thread on the Reading Forum has a recent update on these bridges:
