12-week inquiry into East West Rail underway


February 2019

The next phase of Buckinghamshire's new railway got underway last week.

A public inquiry, looking at East West Rail from Bicester to Milton Keynes and Aylesbury, will run for 12 weeks.

It will look at the plans in detail, including plans for re-opening the line between Aylesbury Vale Parkway and Milton Keynes.

The East West Rail project is being built progressively in phases, and once constructed will create a rail link connecting Oxford, Bicester, Milton Keynes, Bedford and Cambridge.
