Oxfordshire Connect

We’re expanding Oxford station to enable an increase in train services.

The rail infrastructure in the Oxford Station area is close to full capacity and currently wouldn’t support the start of East West Rail services. Through Oxfordshire Connect, the station is being expanded and the wider area upgraded, bringing a range of benefits to passengers and residents alike.

Our plans

The Oxfordshire Connect programme is upgrading Oxford Station, expanding the railway infrastructure in the area and improving the local road network. This programme will bring:

  • A bigger, better station for everyone
  • More services with East West Rail
  • Additional rail capacity for the future
  • An improved and safer road layout

These upgrades will boost the economy with more rail services to support businesses, residents and visitors to the city. By extending the rail network across Oxford and Oxfordshire, they will also drive sustainability, improving access to fast, sustainable passenger and freight transport.
