Daniel Zeichner MP and city council leader Cllr Lewis Herbert are campaigning for the Cross Country service between Peterborough and Stansted to stop at the new Cambridge North railway station.

Current plans agreed by Network Rail mean travellers will need to change at Ely going north and Cambridge central going south.

Timetables will next be reviewed in December 2017.

Daniel Zeichner said: “The arrival of the new Chesterton railway station should reduce the level of congestion in the city centre by relieving the roads connecting Station Road. Once the railway timetable is reviewed again in December 2017, I will be pressing the Government to realise Cambridge North’s potential as a strategic hub for the benefit of both our city and the sub-region.”

The following services will be stopping at Cambridge North from May 2017:

Greater Anglia: Norwich to Cambridge (hourly)

Greater Anglia: London Liverpool Street to Cambridge North (hourly)

Great Northern: King’s Cross to Ely (hourly)

Great Northern: King’s Cross to Cambridge North (hourly)

The King’s Lynn 8-car scheme currently under development will allow for additional services because, at present, King’s Lynn services are too overloaded to accommodate extra passengers at Cambridge North during peak hours.
