East West Rail Western Section Phase 2 – Consultation



East West Rail Western Section Phase 2

You are probably aware that Network Rail is proposing to improve the railway between Oxford and Bedford, and Milton Keynes, Aylesbury and Princes Risborough by upgrading disused and underused rail track to provide new rail links and additional routes and capacity for both passengers and freight. On completion, this new rail link will connect the Great Western, West Coast and Midland Main Lines north of London.

In September 2015 Network Rail consulted on sections of line linking Bedford-Bicester and Milton Keynes–Princes Risborough as part of phase 2. There has been further development following the first round of consultation and Network Rail will be holding a second round of consultation beginning on 30 June and ending on 11 August 2017.

Network Rail will be holding a number of public exhibitions to give communities a chance to view plans and give feedback,

The Winslow exhibition will be on 12th July 2017 at the Public Hall Elmfields Gate MK18 3JG from 12 to 8 pm.
