However the new station is taking shape and new hoardings on London Road proclaim that you will be able to catch a new fast train service to Central London from this summer. This would appear to be a tad optimistic or we can look forward to a longer summer this year!
Here is the hoarding along the work site on the south side of the line.
A closer look.
Looking east from the level crossing you can see more evidence of the cabling work and a recently cast concrete base which I am guessing will soon see the installation of a control cabinet.
Looking the other way from the level crossing, the new station is taking shape. The north side is the site of recently demolished station
Here are a couple of closer shots of the station building and car park.
I then moved round to the business park of the south side of the line and took a few shots of the work.
Here is the station building from the other side.
Here the lift towers awaiting the connecting footbridge look quite imposing.

Finally on my last visit I took a shot of the bridge over the A41 just north of Aylesbury Parkway station and commented on its neglected state. Shortly after it was replaced with a new bridge seen here. However the replacement appears to be only single track which could be shortsighted once services commence to Milton Keynes and Bedford. Passive provision for double track would have allowed capacity to be expanded if the service became more popular than expected.
