Cambridge North set to open on Sunday 21 May

Posted by

Cambridge North railway station is set to open on Sunday 21 May as part of the national timetable change. The three platform railway station will feature several hundred parking spaces, bus services from the Guided Busway and 1,000 cycle parking spaces. The station will be operated by Greater Anglia with trains from Great Northern also serving the station.

Cambridge News have identified the areas of Cambridge that are easier to access from the new railway station.

There have been some criticisms of the timetable, with infrequent services to some nearby stations. There have also been criticisms of the railway layout, which means no north facing connection into platform 3.

Cambridge North will be the third railway station to join the national railway network in 2017 following the opening of Low Moor and Ilkeston in April.

Work on proposed new railway stations and lines continues in this area. A railway station at Addenbrookes is a long held desire. Cambridge is expected to benefit from work to extend East West Rail further east once the first phase of the project is completed. Reopening of the line to Wisbech is a serious contender for investment, with proposals at Soham and Fulbourn also being seriously considered. Campaign groups are pushing forward proposals for a Cambridge Metro and a line to Haverhill.
