We’re part of the modernising the Great Western route to bring passengers faster, more frequent, more reliable services.
Both passenger and freight traffic through Oxford continues to grow so we will deliver a package of schemes to increase capacity, connections and route availability for passengers and freight operators.
We are part of the modernising the existing 1960s signalling, which will make train services travelling through Oxford, Didcot and Reading more reliable.
Resignalling, track remodelling and upgrades will allow trains to travel faster, resulting in passengers, commuters and local businesses having access to a brand new half-hourly London Marylebone to Oxford service.
This investment in the Oxford area will help to grow and support the local economy and will mean that Oxfordshire residents and businesses will be even better connected to places, business, jobs and opportunities.
