|MARLOW - MAIDENHEAD
TWYFORD – HENLEY / TAPLOW / HIGH WYCOMBE
The Marlow - Maidenhead Passengers' Association is the action group for all public transport users - bus and train - in the area served by the Maidenhead to Marlow railway line in the Thames Valley including its former route into High Wycombe. We lobby the operators and local government on behalf of users to improve services and facilities, and we bring you timely information regarding proposed and actual service changes.
We also hold a watching brief for the Twyford to Henley-on-Thames line, known as The Regatta Line, plus Taplow and High Wycombe stations.

Major Works at Maidenhead
Work to remove the canopies and train shed on platforms 4 and 5 at Maidenhead will be carried out over the weekends of 4th/5th and 11th/12th October. During these times the Marlow Branch and relief lines will be closed and a replacement bus service will operate for the branch and between Taplow, Burnham and Slough. The station forecourt will be closed and access to platforms 1 and 2 will be via the Shoppenhangars Road entrance. You can watch the operations to remove the superstructure with a 300 tonne crane from 12:00 on October 4th. More details here.
The Network SouthEast Story
Chris Green, dubbed “the best Chaiman British Rail never had” will be speaking at the RCTS meeting at Cox Green Community Centre,
Maidenhead on Monday 22nd September starting at 19:30. Chris will be signing copies of his new book about Network SouthEast. Admission is £2.00

Crossrail Works at Maidenhead
Crossrail has notified us of work to install a walkway to the east of Maidenhead station over the next month. This will include some night time and
weekend work. For more information please see this letter.
Various works going on at Taplow. Surveyors with theodolites separately surveying the bridge and the drains . According to the bridge team this is
to make bridge accessible, which would require attaching lifts to it on platforms 3 and 4. Platform 3 is also being trenched, with its central section
enclosed in barriers.
Planning Application at Bourne End
MMPA is objecting to a planning application at Cores End which would see a row of 22 houses squeezed onto the trackbed of the trackbed of the former Wycombe line which we wish to see reopened. This is totally daft but it looks like Wycombe DC will approve it anyway.
