The new station at Cambridge North opened to passengers on Sunday 21 May, when new timetables were introduced across the network.
The £50 million station has been funded by the Department for Transport and developed by Network Rail in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council. It was originally projected to open in December 2016.
The station is operated by Greater Anglia and served by both GA and Govia Thameslink Railway’s Great Northern services. Direct trains operate from the station to London Liverpool Street, London King’s Cross, Ely and Norwich. GA intends direct services to Stansted Airport to be added from 2019, when the Norwich to Cambridge service is extended to the airport.
The three-platform station is located near the city’s science and business parks in the northern suburbs. It incorporates a 450-space car park and a 1,000-space cycle park, and is served by the guided bus service and other local buses. GA claims the station uses the latest green technology, including solar panels providing up to 10% of its power.
