Cam­bridge North sta­tion to open on May 21

Rail (UK) - - Network News -

Greater Anglia con­firmed on April 25 that the new Cam­bridge North sta­tion would open on May 21. As this is­sue of RAIL went to press, Net­work Rail was com­plet­ing con­struc­tion be­fore hand­ing it over to GA, which will man­age the fa­cil­ity.

The three-plat­form sta­tion will be served by GA trains run­ning to Cam­bridge, Nor­wich and Lon­don Liver­pool Street. Ini­tially four trains per hour (two in each di­rec­tion) will call at the sta­tion (one in each di­rec­tion to/from Lon­don and one in each di­rec­tion to/from Nor­wich).

Trains to Stansted Air­port will run di­rect from 2019 when the Nor­wich-Cam­bridge ser­vice is ex­tended to the air­port.

Govia Thames­link Rail­way’s Great North­ern trains will also serve the sta­tion, with 2tph run­ning to/from Lon­don King’s Cross (one start­ing at the sta­tion) and one a new fast train on a new Ely to Lon­don King’s Cross ser­vice (off-peak).

The sta­tion fea­tures a 1,000space cy­cle park and a car park for 450 cars, and is served by the Cam­bridge guided bus and lo­cal buses.

There are three ticket ma­chines, a cof­fee shop and other re­tail out­lets. Air­port-style wait­ing rooms have also been built.
