The scheme is known as East West Rail Western Section Phase 2
Network Rail's plan is to develop a proposal to upgrade and reconstruct existing, and mothballed (no longer in use) sections of track linking Bedford-Bicester and Milton Keynes-Princes Risborough.
What will the scheme deliver?
New journey opportunities for passengers between Bedford and Bicester, new passenger services between Milton Keynes and London via Aylesbury, improved regional links to help boost local economies and increased capacity for freight trains, helping to support the UK economy and take vehicles off local roads
The East West Rail Western Section Phase 2 project is part of East West Rail which aims to establish a strategic railway connecting East Anglia with Central, Southern and Western England. It has been promoted and developed since 1995 by the East West Rail Consortium, a group of local authorities and strategic partners.
The East West Rail Western Section Phase 2 project is funded by the Department for Transport with a contribution from the East West Rail Consortium.
