The Department for Transport (DfT) published a Strategic Outline Business Case in November 2017 for a new railway station in the south of Cambridge, serving the internationally significant Cambridge Biomedical Campus and Southern Fringe development areas of Cambridge. The aim of the Cambridge South Infrastructure Enhancement Project is to develop plans for a new station in the vicinity of the growing biomedical campus along with associated infrastructure to sustainably improve connectivity in the Cambridgeshire region. Network Rail have identified the preferred location of the proposed Cambridge South new railway station in June 2020. The chosen location corresponds with Option 1 presented at the public consultation events that we held in January 2020. The DfT has provided £10m to Network Rail to develop detailed proposals for Cambridge South station and associated infrastructure. This includes £5m from local and private sector funding partners in Cambridgeshire, consisting of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, the Greater Cambridge Partnership and AstraZeneca Ltd. On 11 March 2020, the Government’s budget announced funding to build Cambridge South station (subject to consent).
