The East West Rail Company has already looked in some detail at the challenges of providing an alternative route for vehicles when, as seems likely, the London Road level crossing is closed because of safety linked to the new rail services to Milton Keynes and Cambridge.
We’ve extracted the pages of information from the Consultation Technical Report so that the details are easy to find. The pages can be viewed if you click here.
View the alternatives for the probable permanent closure of the level crossing.
The East West Rail project has published details of 6 options that it is considering for the resolution of the issues at London Road level crossing in Bicester. Each option involves closing the existing level crossing because it says there are safety concerns linked to the crossing being closed for up to 50 minutes in each hour when the new rail services begin (probably in 2025).
The Hall will reopen from Thursday 3rd December for our regular user groups that wish to return and who’re permitted to run activities under the Covid-19 rules and restrictions. Please contact your group organiser if you’re unsure whether or not your activities are resuming or allowed.
In order to comply with the latest Covid-19 measures the Langford Village Community Hall is closed to all users from Thursday 5th November. We’d like to thank all our regular Hall hirers for their understanding and we’ll let everyone know here when reopening the Hall becomes possible again. LVCA.
The LVCA has recently responded to the latest proposals to build over 200 new homes on Gavray Drive. Work is expected to take place from 2023 and will take several years to complete. To read the full LVCA response document to Cherwell District Council planners please click here.
Do you know that during times of rain it’s easy to follow the water levels of Langford Brook?
The app here indicates that – usually quite close to real time – for viewing whenever you wish.
Our picture is from 04.10.20 when the Brook burst its banks in a number of places and flooded some of the paths and playing fields when the level was at 1.66m. The area near the bridge and towards London Road was particularly affected by water completely covering the footpaths.

Now that the Community Centre has reopened we’d like to give our very special thanks to Manor Flooring, Mike Pearse Carpentry and Bicester Boiler Services for all their hard work in getting the Hall looking so great again and achieving the very tight timescales involved.
