Network Rail has confirmed the location of Cambridge South railway station following a public consultation in early 2020. The northern option has been chosen.
A second round of public consultation on the preferred option is being planned for later in 2020 to seek feedback on the architectural form of the station, construction elements such as construction routes and diversions, preliminary environmental impacts and the operational scheme. Dates for the launch of Round Two consultation will be announced later in the year.
A Transport and Works Act Order is anticipated to be submitted to the Secretary of State for Transport in 2021 to obtain the consent to build the station.
Subject to gaining consent, work could start on the station in 2023 with a funder target of station opening in 2025.
