Reading, Maidenhead and Slough have all been added to the latest edition of the iconic map of the Tube from TfL

Transport for London (TfL) will run all stopping services between Reading, Berkshire and London Paddington from December 15 2019 when they take over the service currently operated by Great Western Railway.

The new tube map is also the first to show Crossrail which branches out to Reading. Previously, the Heathrow branch, of what will eventually be the Elizabeth line was on there, but the nine stations from West Drayton to Reading were absent.

Are things about to change?

Reading is often cited as one of the best places to work and live in the country and has enjoyed unprecedented growth in recent years partly due to its close proximity to London, which will only be enhanced by this news. The area is now considered a mecca for leading tech firms. Some of the big names with operations here include Microsoft, Dell and Ericsson.

Marc Williams, Area Sales Manager, West Berkshire and South Oxon believes now could be a great time for both buyers and investors to take a closer look at the Reading property market.

“There is a lot of opportunity in Reading with a thriving re-sale market and a number of new build developments in the area. Dragonfly Gardens, is an example of a development which provides a great opportunity for first time buyers to get on the housing ladder and for landlords who can benefit from the increase in demand created by the growth of new, predominantly tech, businesses in the town.
