I may have heard, or mis-heard (only catching the tail end of the item) on BBC Oxford News on Friday night (20th April) that there is some neighbourhood trouble about a contractor cutting down trees to enable restoration of the Down Relief road north of Oxford Station. If so, it will be a continuation of the Down Platform road from the station, and this already reaches out northwards as far as Port Meadow. I remember in the 60s when it was intact and in use, and extended as far as Wolvercote Junction (branch for the Cotswold Line to which the former loop connected). Then yesterday, I heard that the proposed re-instatement is the first move in a re-arrangement of the tracks north of Oxford such that the Up and Down "fast" lines will be on the outside of the formation, with the "slow" freight lines on the inside! Does anybody know anything?
