Cambridge South Station

Fereday Pollard is proud to have been working with Arcadis to support Network Rail launch a second round of consultation focused on station facilities and access arrangements to the site in the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

Lasting six weeks until November 29, there will also be a chance to see how feedback from the first round of consultation earlier this year has informed the current proposals.

The public will be able to view proposals, discuss the plans with Network Rail representatives.

It comes after the preferred location for the station was announced in June. The most northern site, nearest the guided busway, was selected after 55 per cent of those responding backed it.

A Transport and Works Act Order is expected to be submitted to the transport secretary next year to get consent to proceed. Assuming it is approved, work could start on the station in 2023 and it could open in 2025.

“I am really pleased to see the good progress we are making to realise a new station for Cambridge. This second round of public consultation will build upon the comments we received in February, test our proposals and make sure we take forward the best station option for future passengers and the community.”

Ellie Burrows, Network Rail’s route director for Anglia
