Overnight and weekend works on rail corridor between Bicester Village Station and mainline beyond Gavray Drive

Active: June-August 2017

Owing to operational train services and restrictions around access to the railway, we are planning to carry out works on the railway corridor from Bicester Village Station to the Birmingham-London mainline beyond Gavray Drive overnight and during a 29-hour possession. These works will take place between 11pm and 10am (some shifts finishing at 8am) on Saturday nights from the 3 June through August 2017.

There will also be a 29-hour possession on the weekend of the 19/20 August, when we will be working from 11pm on the Saturday and finishing at 6am on Monday 21 August.

The main works comprise

  • Track drainage works between Bicester Village Station and London Road in June/early July
  • Ballast works middle weekends in June and July
  • Bicester Village station electrical cabinet civils works in June/early July.

The work operations are contained within the rail corridor but may be noisy at times, for which we apologise, but our working hours hours are dictated by the operational requirements of the railway during the day.

I hope this information is helpful and we apologise for any inconvenience these essential works may cause.  However, if you have any additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via our helpdesk@bicestertooxfordcollaboration.com or the Network Rail helpline 03457 114141.
