The second section of a £5bn rail link is on time and on budget, according to the company behind it.
The project aims to connect the university cities of Cambridge and Oxford by the end of the decade.
Mr Cuzens said: "Obviously we've come through Covid, but in terms of this section of the railway, because it was disused, a lot of the railway track and the footprint of the railway had been taken over by natural habitat."
"Many rare" native species such as bats and great crested newts had to be "treated with great care", he said.
He said: "For anyone who's travelled east to west across [the] country, you realise rail infrastructure is not really there, so making that link from Oxford through to Cambridge - and hopefully beyond in future years - will be really important."
East-West Rail Alliance project engineer Kevin Bell said: "Once this is operational, it will allow travel into Milton Keynes and over to Oxford and allow passengers to pick up north-south lines they would otherwise have had to make lengthy car journeys to catch."
