Chiltern Railways' new waiting shelter on the London bound platform has now been completed at Haddenham and Thame Parkway station.
The work has taken a long time with what are thought to have been contractual problems (particularly in comparison with the adjacent house construction) but it has been worth the wait.
The shelter is large and easy to access and leave — and should be a lot more comfortable than the previous one on rainy days!
With extended platforms we expect to see longer trains....and a direct service to Oxford.
On the subject of Chiltern Railways, the company has indicated that it is willing to contribute to a solution to the problems of parking in Sheerstock.
