Oxford-London Rail Link Going Ahead
Chiltern Railways has been given permission to start work on a new £130 million Oxford to London rail link.
As part of the project, Chiltern will build a new station at Bicester as well as a new parkway station at Water Eaton north of Oxford. Bicester Town Station will also be redeveloped.
Chiltern's business development director, Graham Cross, said: "We are pleased to have been granted the power to proceed with this significant railway investment, which will benefit thousands of commuters and businesses in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
"The Oxford to London link is the latest in a long line of innovative Chiltern-led projects to upgrade the rail infrastructure, fuelled by our understanding of rail's potential to make a significant contribution to economic growth and prosperity.''
Chiltern say the new link will only involve 0.5 miles (0.8km) of new track. Trains could be running by 2015.
