Foxton Travel Hub

The Greater Cambridge Partnership is currently assessing the potential for a Travel Hub in close proximity to Foxton railway station to offer more sustainable alternatives to the car and to encourage more people to use public transport.

A consultation on possibilities for this Travel Hub is now available to respond to. You can now view the proposals and feedback via a consultation survey.

W H Y  I T  I S  S O  I M P O R T A N T

Reduce congestion and improve journey times to help facilitate local growth.

GET INVOLVED

Residents, businesses and commuters will be able to feedback on our proposals from early September 2019.

FUNDING

If approved the project would be considered for funding from Central Government.

OBJECTIVES AND BENEFITS

  • Explore the opportunity for Foxton railway station to act as a Travel Hub to enable onward rail trips into Cambridge and Cambridge North Stations, and the future Cambridge South station.

Frequently asked questions

A Travel Hub at Foxton station would increase the number of people who can access the rail network into Cambridge. The Travel Hub would provide a up to 750 car parking spaces with easy access to the station allowing people to use public transport to complete their journey into Cambridge rather than drive all the way – reducing congestion and pollution on the route into Cambridge.

Foxton is served by local trains between London Kings Cross and Cambridge North.  The journey to Cambridge takes 10 minutes to Cambridge Central station and approximately 15 minutes Cambridge North– which serves Cambridge Business and Science Parks is reached in 17 minutes.  Trains could also serve a future Cambridge South station which would provide easy access to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus

The significant growth of jobs and housing in the Cambridge City Region means that demand for improved transport is increasing, and a number of Travel Hubs providing public transport connections into employment centres will play an important part in meeting that demand, adding to the existing Park & Ride network.

In late 2018 we consulted on a proposed Cambridge South West Travel Hub site close to Junction 11 of the M11. This proposal is intended to be a larger site providing bus connections to the city centre, and will be accessed mainly by traffic from the M11 as well as the A10. We hope to take the proposal through the formal planning process later this year.

A Foxton Travel Hub is expected to be used mainly by people from the A10 corridor between Cambridge and Royston, and will provide a rail connection to Cambridge and Cambridge North stations, which serve large employment areas, and potential future connections to the proposed Cambridge South station, which would serve the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

All Greater Cambridge Partnership schemes over £5m follow the Department for Transport’s webTAG guidance process. Information about the webTAG process can be found on DfT’s webpages. Briefly, webTAG takes into account a range of different factors including traffic, environmental impact, value for money, transport benefits and safety
