Consultation on Cambridge South plans to be held in 2020

Published: Thursday, December 19, 2019

Plans for a new railway station at Cambridge South will be set out by Network Rail at public consultation launched early next year.

The six week consultation on plans for Cambridge's third station will start on 20 January. The plans include four platforms, taxi and drop off areas, cycle and blue badge parking, shops and toilets.

The station would immediately become the third busiest in the county, according to a study on the transport needs of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus (CBC) published earlier this year by the Greater Cambridge Partnership, organisations on the CBC and transport consultants Atkins.

Cambridge South would work with fast public transport links and cycling improvements being developed by the Greater Cambridge Partnership.

Cllr Aidan Van de Weyer, Chair of the Greater Cambridge Partnership’s Executive Board, said:“Our role is to deliver transformative public transport to make it quicker and easier for people to get to jobs, education and opportunity to maximise the economic boom happening in Greater Cambridge. “We fully support Cambridge South which would unlock the full potential of the Greater Cambridge economy and enable the thousands of people who travel to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus quick and sustainable public transport – helping to cut congestion on our roads and improve air quality.”
