A £500,000 revamp of a train station which serves rail users in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire has been unveiled.

Haddenham and Thame Parkway was rebuilt during the work.

It has been funded by Chiltern Railways, Network Rail, Buckinghamshire County Council and Sustrans.

The revamp of the building, which originally opened in 1987, includes a larger ticket office and coffee shop, as well as upgraded cycle parking.

Transport Minister Baroness Kramer said one of the "excitements" about the revamp was the fact train operator Chiltern Railways had invested in it.

"That's really encouraging for the the future of the railways," she said.

Chef Raymond Blanc, who runs a nearby restaurant in Oxfordshire, officially opened the new station.

Separate works to extend platforms at the station are also being carried out by Chiltern Railways and Network Rail.
