Network Rail is inviting local people to find about more about our plans for Woburn Sands school crossing.

Plans were submitted to upgrade the railway between Bicester and Bedford as part of the East West Rail project in July 2018. Many people commented on the proposal to close School Lane foot crossing and divert pedestrians via the full barrier CCTV crossing on Newport Road.

As a result, Network Rail will be holding an information session between 2pm and 9pm on Wednesday 5 December at the Memorial Hall in Woburn Sands to discuss the issue further.

Colin Murphy, head of consents and environment for East West Rail, said:

“We’d like to thank everyone for their feedback to our Transport and Works Act application and all the comments we received regarding the school crossing at Woburn Sands. 

“To continue the conversation, members of the project team will be available to answer residents’ questions and provide further details on our proposals at the drop-in on 5 December.”
