BAM Nuttall wins rail contract

15 January 2010

Chiltern Railways has awarded BAM Nuttall a UK£ 190 million (€ 215 million) contract to construct a new main line from London Marylebone station to Oxfordshire and the Midlands.

The Evergreen 3 scheme will involve upgrading the main line between Banbury in Oxfordshire and London Marylebone, and the line between Bicester and Oxford.

A new link between the Chiltern line and the Bicester to Oxford line will also be constructed.

The project also includes reconstruction of stations at Bicester and Islip, the addition of new platforms at Oxford and the creation of a new station at Water Eaton Parkway.

These improvements will facilitate the operation of direct railway services between London Marylebone, High Wycombe, Bicester and Oxford; and the introduction of faster trains between the West Midlands and London Marylebone.

The project will be delivered in stages, with the new line to Oxford, including Water Eaton Parkway, expected to open by 2013.
