Chiltern Railways has warned customers to double check train times which have changed since the Nuneham Viaduct has reopened.

The railway line between Oxford and Didcot was closed on Monday, April 3, but the line was reopened last Saturday, June 10, after essential repairs were completed.

The closure of the viaduct meant Chiltern Railways was the only operator offering direct services between London and Oxford, and 4,000 extra seats were temporarily added to this route every weekday to accommodate for the significantly increased demand.

The fully May 2023 timetable will kick in and the temporary enhancements which were brought in along the London Marylebone to Oxford route will be removed.

Chiltern Railways is reverting back to its full May 2023 timetable as the reopening of the viaduct will mean a decrease in customer footfall and capacity will be able to be restored to other parts of the network.

It is estimated that an additional 3,500 passengers travelled along this busy route every weekday during the period in which other direct routes into London were unavailable.

Chiltern Railways has advised customers the new timetable will see more consistent departure times to and from London throughout the day and an additional service will run in the evening.

The operator promised to continue monitoring customer demand and the impact of the May 2023 timetable.
