Access from Didcot West (Foxhall Road) Car Park
The footbridge from the large APCOA Car Park to Didcot Parkway Station (and hence the Railway Centre) is to be replaced over the next few weeks, as part of the Great Western Mainline Electrification project. A temporary footbridge will be in place whilst the old footbridge is demolished and a new one erected, but there may be changes to the access route from the car park over the temporary footbridge. These will be clearly signposted by Network Rail.
