London to Oxford rail link to be built

A £130m Oxford to London rail link will be built with trains expected to start running by 2015.

The existing Bicester Town Station will be developed and a new station built at Water Eaton north of Oxford for trains serving Marylebone.

A new track of 0.5m (0.8km) will join from Bicester Town to the existing Birmingham to Marylebone line.

Chiltern Railways said it had been given government permission to start the project.
