Why is this work taking place?</h4>
<p><img alt="Infographic illustrating Banbury upgrade work" src="//cms.prod.chilt.firstclarity.com/sites/default/files/images/INFOGRAPHIC_2.jpg" style="width: 300px; height: 177px; border-width: 0px; border-style: solid; float: right;" /></p>
<p>This upgrade will replace very old signalling equipment with modern LED signals.</p>
<p>As well as putting in a new, more reliable track layout, this will help keep Chiltern Railways trains some of the most punctual and reliable in the UK.</p>
<p>This work also builds the track infrastructure to link up a new depot at Banbury, which we plan to open in 2017.</p>
