Cambridge North Station is close to the Science Park, St John's Innovation Centre and Cambridge Business Park.
Cambridge North Station was built by Network Rail, more information about the scheme is available from the Network Rail Cambridge North station webpage.
The County Council is providing the transport links to the station, including the new busway from Milton Road and pedestrian and cycle links.
Bus link to the new station
The busway was extended to link the existing section from Milton Road to the station. This link is a bus-only road with guided sections at the entrance and exit. As with the existing busway, there is a track alongside it. which can be used by cyclists and pedestrians.
Buses cross straight over Milton Road from the St Ives busway to the new station.
The maps below show the location of the new busway and station area.
Foot and cycleway links to the new station
We are currently developing a number of new foot and cycle paths, which would provide access to the new Cambridge North station. These are links via:
- Moss Bank
- Nuffield Road
- Cowley Road: along a disused Network Rail maintenance track parallel to Cowley Road
Moss Bank Compulsory Purchase Order
In order to create a foot and cycle path from Moss Bank to the Cambridge North Station and Interchange, it was necessary to purchase a parcel of land in Moss Bank. The Compulsory Purchase Order is published below along with details for objections.
Cowley Road Maintenance Track Cycleway
The path follows a disused Network Rail maintenance track which runs between the First Public Drain/Cowley Road and Cambridge Business Park. The path is fully surfaced and 5 metres in width. The length of the path is lit by street lighting.
Plans and technical documents outlining the path are available below:
Local Liaison Forum
A Local Liaison Forum was established to meet regularly during the construction of the busway.
The main purpose of the Local Liaison Forum was to facilitate communication and understanding between interested parties. It provided an informal forum for representatives of interest groups to:
- give an update on progress,
- discuss any matters arising, and
- get questions answered.
Network Rail is responsible for the Local Liaison Forum.
