An extensive programme of upgrade and improvement work is to be carried out at Aylesbury station starting on Saturday 12th November 2016.
The work will include repairs and refurbishment of the station footbridge, the overhaul the station canopies and upgrading the lighting at the station.
The improvement work is a joint project between Chiltern Railways and Network Rail and will start on Saturday 12th November 2016 and last until April 2017.
During the improvement works some passengers journeys may be affected however the improvement plans have been designed to keep this to a minimum.
The refurbishment work to the footbridge is expected to be a major undertaking and will mean the bridge won’t need any further major works for at least 20 years. During the work to the footbridge it will be completely closed to passengers, so a temporary bridge will be installed for passenger use.
The temporary footbridge will not have lifts, so from Tuesday 22nd November 2016 passengers with mobility problems, those using buggies, prams, or travelling with heavy luggage will need to use one of the other stations in the area where alternative transport will be arranged if needed.
The latest updated on the progress of the improvement work and information about where to go if you require step-free access as well as Chiltern Railways weekend rail replacement timetables can be found on the Aylesbury Station Improvement page of the Chiltern Railways website.
