What you said was!


"My view is that good start would be to add a 4 miles of double track from Wolvercote to Hanborough (exclusive) to get Cotswold trains off the mainline and shorten the single line section,  without having to rebuild any stations.

What I said was




 
There is already the facility to do this as there is a signal protecting the single line 500 yds past Wolvercote. However it would only help if nothing was coming along in the up direction.

But if trains are coming towards Oxford, you can't get the Northbound train off the mainline. Ditto at Norton.

Cotswolds MP (Member of Parliament) Geoffrey Clifton-Brown is urging people to write to the ORR to push for work to start on the Cotswold Line as soon as possible and to reverse the decision on the Swindon to Kemble line (link below.)

Transport minister Tom Harris is backing the Stroud Valley re-doubling plans (link below.)
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/gloucestershire/7482746.stm

Quote from: Tom Harris
"I will commit my own officials to working with the industry to make the case very strongly to the ORR» (Office of Rail and Road formerly Office of Rail Regulation - about) that the re-doubling of this lane (article probably meant to say "line") should in fact go ahead."

Lee, are you sure he isn't referring to a road that runs next to the railway? He clearly says lane! Smiley
