Network Rail has announced that the Chiltern main line will be closed near Beaconsfield to allow a footbridge which crosses the railway to be replaced.
The old footbridge at Beaconsfield Golf Club will be replaced with a new modern structure in a £1.2m investment by Network Rail.
The railway line between Bicester and Denham will be closed on the weekend of Saturday 30th/Sunday 31st January.
Replacement buses will be in operation while the line is closed for the bridge replacement. They will operate between High Wycombe and Hillingdon (London Underground) via Denham, Gerrards Cross and Beaconsfield.

A bus service will also run between Amersham and High Wycombe and from Aylesbury Vale Parkway to Bicester Village/Bicester North (via Haddenham & Thame Parkway).
Lawrence James, scheme project manager for Network Rail, said: “Upgrading the public footbridge at Beaconsfield Golf Club will not only ensure that this public right of way is safely maintained for years to come, but will also provide continued reliable journeys for passengers using the Chiltern main line.”
“While most passengers will be following government advice to stay at home while this work takes place, those who do still need to use the railway should leave extra time for their journey and check their journey before setting off.”
Eleni Jordan, commercial & customer strategy director for Chiltern Railways, said: “The important work being carried out by Network Rail will ensure that we can continue to provide a reliable and punctual service for our customers when they can travel again. Customers who need to travel should check their journey via the Chiltern website or app before starting their journey.”
“We’d like to thank customers and local residents for their patience and understanding while the work is being completed.”
