Commuting to work on the train is not always a bed of roses, especially with winter approaching.
Commuters who use Cambridge station are having a particularly difficult time with improvement work adding to the queues. They're complaining the work is taking too long but train bosses say the new facilities being created will be worth the wait.
£4 million of improvement work to the site, coupled with the new CB1 development being built around it, has created some logistical challenges at the station.
The revamped station will include a far larger ticket office and concourse and smarter toilets.
There will also be more car parking and Britain's biggest cycle park with space for 3,000 bikes.
The area around the station will soon be filled with shops, restaurants, offices and a hotel.
In the long term the proposed new Cambridge North stattion at Chesterton should help ease congestion but work to the main station could take another year.
