A plan has been launched to help residents in the north of the county deal with the disruption that has been caused by the current East West Rail works.

The ongoing development aims to deliver passengers from Oxford (Oxfordshire) to Great Yarmouth (Norfolk), with the line expecting to go through Buckinghamshire.

Areas within the county such as Milton Keynes, Woburn Sands, Bow Brickhill, Fenny Stratford, Bletchley, Winslow, and Aylesbury will have the train going through its railway stations, as part of the new line.

However, the multi-million-pound project has caused several locations to complain regarding the works.

And following meetings with Buckingham’s MP Greg Smith, as well as several parish councillors, a community action plan has been drawn up by EWR (East West Rail) to help those who live in the area.

Buckingham MP Greg Smith said: "There have been significant issues with the impact of the construction of East West Rail on local people.

“Over recent weeks, I have been in, at times robust, talks with both the East West Rail Company and the East West Rail Alliance to find a way to re-set the way they work with communities as they build this railway.

“This has included a number of meetings involving representatives of affected Parish and Town Councils, affected businesses and Buckinghamshire Council.

“EWR have now produced an action plan to fix the issues we have all been suffering and I will now be going through that in detail to ensure it meets the expectations of local people, then holding EWR to account in delivering on it."

This comes after EWR admitted to causing disruption.

They said: “The construction of a major project can have undesirable impacts on the local communities and that any such impacts must be managed out or mitigated wherever possible.

“As the scale of activities has increased over the previous months there have been heightened impacts on the communities along the route and that more needs to be done to address this.

“As a result, and in consultation with the communities, and their political representatives, this action plan has been prepared.”

The plans have revealed that signs stating ’20 is plenty’ will be put up for drivers working on the project, whilst any drivers that are caught speeding, littering, or parking across drivers will be excluded.
