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

It has been promoted and developed since 1995 by the East West Rail Consortium, a group of local authorities and strategic partners.
