Cambridge South Station

A railway station serving the busy and thriving Cambridge Biomedical Campus is essential for projected growth in jobs and visitors to be sustained.

Why is it important?

  • Cambridge Biomedical Campus is a key employer and site for new homes in the south of Cambridge
  • We want to support sustainable travel and public transport for patients, residents, commuters and national and international visitors

What difference will it make?

Building a new station in the South of Cambridge aims to:

  • support 27,000 new jobs and thousands of new homes in and around the Biomedical Campus
  • support 105,000 other jobs across Cambridge by improving links to public transport networks
  • encourage green travel across the region: unlike most railway stations, the design solution intentionally excludes car parks
  • provide better and more inclusive access to the Biomedical Campus for everyone

What happens next?

We are working on the Outline Business Case, which is due to be delivered in 2021.

On the current timetable, as long as the project is approved at each stage, work is likely to begin in 2023 and be fully open in 2025.

When do I have a say?

Network Rail’s second round of consultations took place in October 2020.

We welcome comments or suggestions at any time: please use our Contact Us form to get in touch with the transport team.

Where can I learn more?

The strategic work for the project is being undertaken by Network Rail, with funding provided by the Combined Authority and AstraZeneca.

The Strategic Outline Business Case is the technical document that lays out the current thinking and plans for the project.
