PARKING CHANGES AT MILTON KEYNES CENTRAL STATION
- A third fast line and platform, which will enable consecutive trains to call at Milton Keynes during peak times with reduced effect on line capacity
- A new platform capable of handling future services to and from Bedford – and possibly in the future trains from Oxford or Aylesbury
- Improved reversing facilities for slow line trains

About Network Rail
We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.
Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
