Work on site to construct the new station is due to begin later this year and the station is now set to open seven months ahead of schedule in May 2013, the council said.

Buckingham Rail director Simon Walkley said: “As a local company we are especially pleased to have this opportunity to work with Warwickshire County Council on this exciting and challenging project. We look forward to delivering a scheme which will bring many sustainable benefits to the local community.”
