Buses will replace trains between Princes Risborough – Haddenham & Thame Parkway – Bicester Village – Bicester North.

A heavily-amended timetable will be in operation, journey times will take longer than usual and customers will need to change trains, travel with other operators or use rail replacement services.

This work forms part of Britain’s Railway Upgrade Plan and includes Network Rail track replacement work which will ensure the railway is in the best possible condition for customers when travel restrictions are eased.
