The consultation on phase two of East West Rail, which started on 30 June, is an opportunity to discuss and comment on initial plans to help shape its future development.


Dominic Baldwin, Network Rail’s project director for East West Rail, said: “We want as many people as possible to engage with our plans which will make travel across Britain easier. There are many different ways the public can participate including drop in events, a dedicated website and an app which can be downloaded straight to their phones. I would urge anyone who has an interest in this investment in the railway to make their voices heard.”


The East West Rail project will make cross country travel easier, re-establishing a rail link between Cambridge and Oxford to improve connections between East Anglia and central, southern and western England.


Phase 2 of the western section of the project will introduce rail passenger services between Bedford and Oxford, Milton Keynes and Oxford, and Milton Keynes and London Marylebone via Aylesbury. It will mean passengers and freight services can make the journey between Bedford and Oxford without having to travel in and out of London.


The work is being funded by the Department for Transport with a contribution from the East West Rail Consortium*.
