Oxford and London Rail Line
The new £320m rail line linking Oxford and London has opened in a deal between operator Chiltern Railways and Network Rail. Chiltern Railways says it is the first train line to link a major British city to London in 100 years.
Two new stations in the county, Oxford Parkway and Bicester Village, will take the passengers into London Marylebone.
Commuters will be able to travel from the north of Oxford, just off the A34, near Water Eaton park-and-ride, to London Marylebone in just under an hour. The direct line into the city of Oxford is expected to open in 2016.
The rebuilt station for Bicester Village has also opened, directly linking the retail park to London. The journey from Bicester Village to London Marylebone will take 46 minutes. Oxford Parkway is expected to attract an additional 250,000 return commuter journeys each year.
The new service will offer two new fast trains per hour throughout the day between Oxford Parkway, Bicester Village Station and London.
