The Railway Centre is now open daily until 13 September 2015.

M4 /A34 Chieveley Junction Restrictions
Due to repair work on the bridges on the roundabout, there may be closures of parts of the roundabout at certain weekends until early August. These generally stop you making a right turn (eg. from M4 Westbound onto A34 Northbound or from A34 Southbound onto M4 Westbound). Diversions are in place but may add 20-30 minutes to your journey. Weekends notified at present are: 1/2 August and 8/9 August. For more information see Highways England website.
