The Department for Transport is working with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, Greater Cambridge Partnership and AstraZeneca to develop proposals for a new station and associated rail infrastructure at Cambridge South, to serve the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

The development stage of the scheme will take around two years. Subject to the business case being satisfactory, gaining of planning powers, and affordability to funders, the station and associated rail infrastructure would be expected to be complete in the mid 2020s.
