Cambridge’s newest rail station is already helping to speed up journeys for commuters into and out of the city less than 2 months after opening.
Cambridge North station was officially opened by Transport Secretary Chris Grayling today (7 August 2017). On his visit to the city today he also met with key stakeholders on the innovative East West Rail () project.
The station is set to serve up to 3,000 commuters a day. It is helping to cut traffic congestion into the city centre and is making journeys to the Cambridge Science Park quicker and easier.
Mr Grayling said:
The opening of Cambridge North marks the start of our plans to transform journeys for passengers in Cambridgeshire and maximise growth for the wider region.
We are committed to making journeys across this region quicker and easier, as soon as possible. The new station is already contributing to that.
East West Rail is at the heart of that transformation and can be a critical part of our plans to make this region the UK’s own Silicon Valley, a world renowned centre for science and innovation.
