Residents are being urged to make their voices heard on alternative ways for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians to cross a railway in Bicester before the deadline of June 9.

The development of East West Rail (EWR), linking Oxford with Cambridge via Milton Keynes and Bedford, will mean trains passing more frequently through Bicester’s London Road level crossing – drastically reducing the amount of time the level crossing will be open to vehicles.

The barriers could be down for up to 50 minutes in every hour.

EWR Co is seeking public feedback, through a non-statutory consultation, on six options it is considering.

Consultation documents and the feedback form can be found at, or you can call 0330 134 0067 to speak to members of the EWR project team.
