Edgcote viaduct

Set low into the landscape, the 515m long Edgcote viaduct will carry the railway across the floodplain of the River Cherwell, south of Chipping Warden. At between six and eight meters high, the viaduct will be supported by 20 pairs of concrete piers and from a distance, will be largely hidden by existing hedgerows and woodland. 

The proposal includes over 17 hectares of new wildlife sites for birds, bats and newts – including marshland and meadow.
