Oxford Parkway to Oxford

What would have been required, in terms of temporary signalling arrangements, to run trains this weekend from Oxford Parkway into the main Oxford station? I don't know for certain but I assume the track is still, in place? Oxford station is still operating for Cotswold line trains.

A few days ago there was still intensive track work & platform work in progress at the North end of Oxford station and its approaches - certainly no usable new platforms and approach tracks yet. I'm not sure about connections to the main lines, but with Worcester trains terminating to avoid the Hinksey works, capacity would be limited. Signalling alterations to interface with W.Midlands instead of Banbury South (R.I.P.) would also be a hindrance.
