About The Project

Aylesbury Vale Parkway has been built three km north west of Aylesbury town station, next to the A41 and a major new housing development at Berryfields. The £9.9 million project includes the upgrading of railway track and the building of a new bus based park and ride linking to the town centre via the A41.

Summary

The existing track, which was previously used by freight trains, has been upgraded to enable it to take passenger trains as well, and new signaling equipment has been installed.

Chiltern Railways’ passenger trains provide a direct service between Aylesbury Vale Parkway, Aylesbury and other stations, including Amersham, Rickmansworth, Harrow and London Marylebone.

Parking for up to 500 cars has been provided as part of the combined facility and it is estimated that there is throughput of about 250,000 people each year.

Ongoing activity

Financial close for the project was reached in August 2007. Following a fast tracked build, which was implemented via Carillion, the station has been fully operation since May 2009.
