    NEW RAIL LINE TO LONDON MARYLEBONE NOW OPEN

    Chiltern Railways and Network Rail’s new rail link connecting central Oxford with the capital is now open, following a unique £320m investment by the franchise operator and the infrastructure manager.

    The completion of the new rail link to London – the first from a major British city in more than 100 years – sees central Oxford connected to Marylebone via successful new stations Oxford Parkway and Bicester Village. It has been just 16 months since the line opened from Oxford Parkway in October 2015. The first year has seen over 1.5 million passengers using the line; this is expected to grow with the extension into the city.

    Oxford residents now have an alternative way of getting into London. The new service will offer two new trains per hour throughout the day between Oxford and London Marylebone with journey times to the capital from just over an hour.

    A close collaborative partnership between Chiltern Railways and Network Rail has delivered high levels of performance and Chiltern is consistently one of the top rated franchise operators for customer satisfaction in the National Rail Passenger Survey.

    Dave Penney, Managing Director of Chiltern Railways said:

    “This is a significant milestone in the history of Chiltern Railways. The new line delivers meaningful benefits for those living and working in the region and will be economically advantageous for the regional economy.”

    It creates direct competition in the rail market between Oxford and London giving customers a real choice and flexibility, as well as delivering the first new service between a major British city and London for over 100 years.”
