Oxford Station closed between Sat. July 29 and Sun. August 6 2023

Oxford Rail Station is completely closed between Saturday July 29 and Sunday August 6th. The closure is to allow upgrades to the track and signalling system to take place. No trains will run to or from Oxford Station on any of these dates.

There will also be a number of overnight and one-day closures on the following dates: Sunday August 13; Sunday September 10; Saturday September 16; Sunday, October 15. 

On closure sates trains will run on the Cotswold line as far as Hanborough, but on an altered timetable. There will be a Rail Replacement Bus to Didcot from there, except on RMT strike dates which includes Saturday July 29th (as well as  on Thursday 20 July and Saturday 22 July which are both outside the closure period). 

Oxford Parkway station will remain open during the closure period, except on the RMT strike dates. Those wanting to travel to London from Oxford Parkway could consider getting the S3 bus to Woodstock and changing to the no 7 bus there. From July 23rd the timetable for the S3 bus is changing. Note some of the early buses do not run along Sturt Road or The Slade, but can be picked up at Enstone Rd, The Bell or Five Ways (Wellington Cottages).
