Chiltern Railways have issued a notice about important weekday disruptions affecting all services on Friday 11th of March due to major work taking place at Princes Risborough. This work will result in significant timetable changes to all Chiltern Railway services.

The line will be closed between Bicester North and High Wycombe so that additional track can be added, which will contribute to faster journey times from May 2011.

There will also be significant changes to our timetable on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th. Once this work is complete 58% of our Mainline project will be complete, bringing shorter journey times closer.

Please check with Chiltern Railways direct for more information on how your journey will be affected.

And if you have any further questions regarding your journey please speak to a member of station staff or call Chiltern Railway on 08456 005 165
