star this property answer text <p> </p><p>On 27 March, the Government and Transport for London announced that Crossrail services will be extended to serve Reading from 2019. Once Crossrail services begin across the whole line in 2019, passengers travelling to London from Windsor, Reading and other Thames Valley stations will be able to travel to more destinations across London without the need to change at Paddington. Construction of Crossrail is now more than half completed and electrification of the Great Western Main Line is also under way. Electrification of the Slough to Windsor route is approved and will improve local connectivity.</p><p> </p><p>The transformation of Reading station was completed on time and under budget as part of the £850 million Reading Station Area Redevelopment programme and formally opened by Her Majesty The Queen on 17 July.</p><p> </p><p>The Government continues to progress the M4 Junction 3–12 smart motorway project, the next step for which is formal public consultation in the autumn. The Highways Agency is also taking forward a £2.5 million pinch point scheme to increase capacity at the M4/A329 (M) junction.</p><p> </p><p>On 7 July the Government agreed the £96.9m Growth Deal with the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership. This includes £94.6m to support local transport improvements across the whole of Berkshire, including in and between Windsor and Reading.</p><p> </p><p />

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Department is committed to helping people live well for longer. The Responsibility Deal pledge to remove one billion units of alcohol from the market by the end of 2015 (a reduction of around 2%) has a role to play in supporting improvements in reducing alcohol-related harms. In the first year of this four year pledge, 253 million units of alcohol were taken out of the market. A copy of the report showing this analysis has already been placed in the Library.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Because much alcohol-attributable harm occurs in middle or older age groups as a result of years of drinking above the lower-risk guidelines, even a relatively small reduction is likely to have a significant impact upon long-term and chronic illnesses.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Improving consumer awareness can help people make informed choices about when and how much they drink. For advice on alcohol consumption to be meaningful, people need to be able to put it into the context of their own drinking habits. To increase awareness and understanding of alcohol units, the lower-risk drinking guidelines and the Chief Medical Officer’s advice on drinking during pregnancy, 92 companies committed to displaying this information on 80% of bottles and cans by the end of 2013.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>An independent market survey has been carried out which we expect to be published shortly. Subject to publication of the final report:</p><p> </p><p>- On a market share based on the total numbers of bottles and cans (ie a distinct item), 79.3% of bottles and cans have this information.</p><p> </p><p>- On a market share based on alcohol by volume, 69.9% of bottles and cans have this information.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In addition to unit and health information on bottles and cans, pub chains and retailers committed to providing unit and health information. This year, Ipsos Mori carried out an independent survey of whether the public saw such information. 27% of the public said they saw a British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) or Wine and Spirits Trade Association (WSTA) unit awareness image; 41% of 18-24 year-olds recalled seeing at least one image; 27% saw something similar and 52% of those also saw BBPA or WSTA materials.</p>
