The station will serve Cambridge’s Science Park, suburbs and villages north of Cambridge and is expected to ease the 11 million a year footfall at the city's main station. Station will be served by Greater Anglia and Great Northern.
Network Rail is currently putting finishing touches to the £50 million station's construction before handing it over to Greater Anglia to manage.
Initially four Greater Anglia trains an hour, will serve the station two in each direction - one service to London, one arrival from London, one Cambridge to Norwich service and one Norwich to Cambridge service. Fares include Greater Anglia advance purchase Cambridge North to London single tickets from £7. In 2019, a new direct Greater Anglia Norwich to Stansted Airport service will be introduced, stopping at Cambridge North, when the company introduces new trains on its network during 2019-20.
Great Northern trains will also stop at the station, with two trains per hour to London King’s Cross, of which one will be a stopping train starting at Cambridge North and one a fast train per hour on the new Ely to London fast service, off peak. This will be slightly different in the morning and evening peaks. Great Northern services will be provided by its new modern trains, as it introduces an entire replacement fleet of air-conditioned trains on the Cambridge-King’s Lynn Fen Line.
The station includes a 1,000-space cycle park and a car park for 450 cars. It is also served by the Cambridge guided bus service and local buses. Local cycle routes connect with the new station and it is within easy reach of the A14 and A10.
