Railway construction northeast of Bicester, 3 August 2014
The immediate view, from a London-bound Chiltern Railways train, is of the site of a new rail link between Bicester Town station and the Chiltern Line. It will allow Chiltern to run services between Marylebone and Oxford. In railway circles, I understand, this link is called the Bicester Chord. Here is the long base layer which must support the inclined embankment up to the junction of the lines.

The bigger picture is that this is part of the EastWest Rail Project to connect East Anglia with central, southern and western England LinkExternal link Thanks to Andrew Bodman for information. He is photographing other parts of the undertaking LinkExternal link
