Botley Road audio guide map

Improving accessibility during our station expansion.

Work to expand Oxford station to enable an increase in train services to and through the area is well underway. The replacement of Botley Road bridge is an essential part of this work to improve the station, the wider railway and road, cycle and pedestrian routes. 

Botley Road has been closed while we divert utilities under the road. It will also need to be closed in 2024 to allow for work on the road way and for the replacement of the bridge itself.

To help with navigation through our extensive work site, we have teamed up with OxTalk and MyVision, working with people with lived experience to create this audio guide.
