The Department for Transport considered the Strategic Outline Business Case (SOBC) for the proposed new station and associated infrastructure at Cambridge South in late 2017. The SOBC included an estimate of national and regional benefits associated with the scheme totalling £46.8m in present value terms (2010 prices, 60 year appraisal period). Further work is underway to determine the feasibility of the scheme, in conjunction with local funding partners.
