As part of the East West Rail - Western Section Phase 2 programme, VolkerFitzpatrick has been contracted to construct Bletchley High Level station in preparation for the delivery of much-needed transport connections for communities between Oxford and Cambridge.
VolkerFitzpatrick is connecting the existing station to the East West Rail line, once it is opened in 2024, by building a new link bridge to the existing platforms at Bletchley station and constructing two new high level platforms, which will connect the station to the Bletchley Flyover and take the total number of platforms from six to eight. In addition, it is proposed that two lifts and an underpass will also be constructed in order to provide access between platforms 7 and 8.
The work to upgrade the station will run through to spring 2022; constructed a safe distance away from the operational railway to ensure minimal disruption to train passengers.
Bletchley High Level station will eventually be at the centre of the first direct rail service to connect communities between Oxford, Bedford and Cambridge in more than 50 years.
The project will bring people closer to the things that matter most including jobs, new homes and family; providing reliable, quick, environmentally sustainable journeys and more affordable travel.
