HS2 Ltd want the public's view on a new viaduct close to the Northamptonshire border.

Images for the Oxford Canal Viaduct have now been released. The three prestressed concrete spans will take the railway 62.5m across the canal, towpath and a country lane near the village of Wormleighton, between and Banbury.

The construction of HS2 has created controversy across the region as the high speed rail link cuts through swathes of the countryside.
