Islip 21 April 2015

The new trackbed, freshly covered with a layer of brilliant white ballast, at Islip on 21 April 2015. The Oxford to Bicester line is being upgraded as part of Chiltern's new route to London, and for the East West Rail project. This is the cutting between the two road bridges, a location that was formerly very overgrown, and is hardly recognisable from the same view in 2012.
