The new East West Rail line being built between Aylesbury and Milton Keynes could result in the closure of several rights of way across the track.

The consortium responsible for the new £250m transport project – which will pass through a number of towns including Bicester and Winslow– is holding a number of public consultation meetings to determine which rights of way are being used the most.

A spokesman for Network Rail said: “With regard to the term ‘rights of way’ as we use it within Network Rail - it refers to footpaths, bridleways and user work crossings, which are generally crossings used by farmers.”
