Cambridge South railway station is a proposed railway station located in Cambridge adjacent to Addenbrooke's Hospital and Cambridge Biomedical Campus. The station will be on the Cambridge line and West Anglia Main Line. It is planned to open in 2025.

Background

A new station was proposed in 2017.[1] In August 2017, the Transport Secretary backed plans for a new station as part of the East West Rail plan,[2][3] with a possible opening date of 2021,[4][5] that could also include a light rail link.[6] An unsuccessful application was made to the New Stations Fund 2 in 2017,[7] but £5 million was allocated to the project in the November 2017 Budget Speech.[8]

Funding for Cambridge South station was announced in the budget of 11 March 2020.[9] Three options for its location near Addenbrooke's Hospital have been identified between the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway bridge on Cambridge Biomedical Campus to the north and the Addenbrooke’s Road bridge to the south.[10]
