Ongoing minor delays between Bicester North and Haddenham & Thame Parkway - Due to an emergency speed restriction
What's the problem?
Essential Network Rail earthworks on an embankment near Bicester means southbound services are experiencing delays of up to 4 minutes. Our trains have to run much slower in this area and this is extending journey times. This affects services from Oxford/Birmingham/Banbury to London Marylebone.

What's the impact on our service?
Southbound train services running through these stations may be delayed by up to 4 minutes. Disruption is expected until Sunday 23rd September.
During the morning and evening peak we are experiencing a higher number of delays at the moment due to the speed restrictions imposed.
Thank you for your patience as repairs are carried out, Chiltern Railways and Network Rail are working hard to return services to normal.
