Why?

  • Better links between the train station and the town centre will bring economic beneļ¬ts, especially when the East West Rail link between Bicester and Bletchley opens.
  • This is one of a number of projects that the Council is undertaking to regenerate Bletchley.
  • The Council made improvements to the bus station in 2014.  Moreover, Queensway will be opened up to through traffic again in Summer 2016.

When and for how long?

Work started in January 2016 and will complete in Autumn 2016.

Will this mean roadworks?

Yes – there will be some traffic management in place whilst work is carried out in this area; however, every effort is being made to keep inconvenience to a minimum.
