Oxford Station And Chiltern Trains

In a couple of years Chiltern Trains will go between London Marylebone and Oxford stations around the Bicester Chord. Wikipedia says this about how Oxford station will be expanded to accept the extra services.

The scheme also includes two new platforms at Oxford station, to be built on the site of the disused parcels depot. The new platforms would initially be five carriages in length, but provision will be made for them to be extended southwards to eight carriages.

These pictures show the Parcels Office.

I would suspect that any southward extension would use the car park.The Parcels Office is clearly shown in this Google Earth image of the station.
