Background

The Cambridge Local Plan 2018 identifies the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and the Cambridge Southern Fringe as an area of major change in Cambridge.

The Cambridge Biomedical Campus is an internationally significant health and life sciences cluster and is expected to accommodate 27,000 jobs by 2031.

It is envisaged that by 2031 new housing developments across the Cambridge Southern Fringe comprising an estimated 4000 new homes will have been built.

Benefits

The new station would connect the Cambridge Biomedical Campus with potential destinations such as central London, London Stansted Airport, Ely, Birmingham and Europe.

The station would also provide access to a growing area of high quality employment and also help relieve congestion in the local area by supporting the development of environmentally sustainable transport in Cambridge.

In the future East West Rail services from Bedford to Cambridge could serve the new station.
