East Anglia Cambridge Science Park


Cambridge North station is scheduled to open on 21st May 2017 and received confirmation of funding in the 2014 Autumn Statement.

Planning application approval

Network Rail's planning application for this new railway station was approved by the Cambridge Fringes Joint Development Control Committee on 19 August 2015 subject to the completion of a section 106 Agreement between Network Rail, Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council


The Committee's decision in these minutes also required Network Rail's disused private maintenance track to the site which runs along the North side of Cambridge Business Park to be released to form a high quality pedestrian and cycle access to the new station and that pedestrian and cycle links to the Cambridge Business Park (for which planning permission was granted separately) from this new pedestrian cycleway are implemented. This will significantly improve pedestrian and cycle access from the new railway station to Cambridge Science Park, the Cambridge Business Park and the St John's Innovation Centre and was requested by Railfuture in the following letter to Network
