Chiltern Railways has provided an update on major engineering works, which have closed a track in Bucks for two months.  

Network Rail, which owns Britain’s railway infrastructure like tracks, signals and stations, has been working closely with the high-speed railway project, including in Buckinghamshire.

The major engineering works shut the railway between Princes Risborough, Monks Risborough, Little Kimble and Aylesbury in August. All Chiltern Railways trains between these stops are currently replaced by buses until Sunday October 29.

Chiltern Railways operations director Jacqueline Dey said: "We are pleased that these HS2 engineering works are on time, ready for the railway to be handed back at the end of October.

"We'd like to thank customers for their patience and understanding while this closure takes place, and remind them to check their rail replacement bus journey on the Chiltern Railways website or app before they travel."

Now Network Rail has released a video to show a bird’s eye view of the ongoing works to re-align almost 1.2 miles (2km) of track between Aylesbury and Princes Risborough so that the HS2 can build the new high-speed lines beneath the existing railway network.

It shows the engineers using a new track construction train to install brand new sleepers and rail across a new 100m bridge built by the HS2 contractor EKFB.
