South Northants Link
The campaign to link some of the largest villages and towns in South Northamptonshire and Daventry including Towcester, Daventry, Brackley, Weedon and more.
We have recently published some plans for a route. Please bear in mind this is a draft only, and could be changed in the future.
Some of the communities we'll serve
The following communities, towns and villages are on our route. They include Daventry and Brackley, some of the largest towns in the country to not have a connection to our National Rail network, or any decent public transport network.
Towcester has a population of almost 10,000 people. Without a decent connection to a local public transport network, it will not be able to grow as we all want it to.
Daventry is almost the largest town without a train station, with a 25,000 people population in the town alone. A station on public transport will be needed in Daventry to allow it to grow efficiently.
Southam is flooded with railway lines, including High Speed Two and the existing Chiltern Main Line going through the area. However, Southam, a town, hasn't got any good transport links.
Brackley has a population of 13,000 and with their population growing rapidly, they need a link to a better local transport network. Brackley's current station is King's Sutton, which is on the border between Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire.
Weedon Interchange will be the most major location on the network, where people can change onto different lines on the network, and possibly take a regional train to London or Birmingham.
South Northants Parkway.
A local stop on the network to serve the villages of Silverstone, Whittlebury, Paulersbury and the Towcester Suburbs, including a special service for the Silverstone Circuit.
