This group of photo galleries follows the development of the East West Rail Link section between Bicester and Oxford, together with the "Bicester Chord", a 1km section linking the Oxford Line with the Chiltern Main Line

The upgrade of the Oxford-to-Bicester line not only facilitates the new Chiltern Railways service between Oxford and London, but is also the first phase of works on the western section of the East West Rail scheme, which will reinstate the railway for passenger and freight services through to Milton Keynes and Bedford.

The project includes building a new 1km section of railway to connect the Bicester Town to Oxford line to the Chiltern main line. It will also involve widening the existing track bed; doubling over 18km of track; increasing line speed to 100mph; constructing new overbridges, underbridges and footbridges; closing 37 level crossings; building a new Oxford Parkway station at Water Eaton; upgrading Bicester Town and Islip stations; and installing a new signalling system.
