Cambridge train station designs revealed

The first sketches for a proposed second railway in Cambridge have been unveiled, reports

Cited by, The initial train station design for the £26 million Cambridge Science Park station - which plans to open in 2015 - highlights a pair of buildings (two and three storeys respectively) linked by a footbridge and lifts to three platforms.

Judging by the designs, a main building would front onto a tree-lined public square while an extension to the guided busway would be included, along with 1,000 bike parking spaces and 450 car bays.

Cambridgeshire County Council intends to pay for the station by borrowing, then recouping the cash from train operators' ticket sales. 

Planning permission is set to be discussed at the authority's cabinet meeting on January 29 but the outlook appears positive for the project - 90 per cent of those who participated in a public consultation supported the build.

Cllr Ian Bates, the cabinet member for growth and planning, commented on the designs: "I am excited to say that the planning application of the new Cambridge Science Park railway station will be submitted shortly.

"November's very successful consultation showed that people are really behind the proposals, with almost 90 per cent of those who responded saying they were in favour of the new station being built," he added.
