A brand new train station is opening in Cambridge North on Sunday.

The new station will ease congestion into Cambridge city centre and tickets to London can be bought in advance for as little as £7.

It's great news for those wishing to travel between the city centre and Cambridge science and business parks, or the suburbs and villages to the North of Cambridge, as they will no longer have to make the half hour drive, as it'll be only 6 minutes by rail now.

It's a fantastic design, incorporating Cambridge's innovative heritage, and one of the most environmentally-friendly stations on the network.

– Jamie Burles, Greater Anglia Managing Director

Green technology has been the at the heart of the build including solar panels which provide up to 10% of the station's power.

Passengers will have options of travelling in the direction of London or Norwich and can check the timetables and fares now www.greateranglia.co.uk or www.greatnorthernrail.co.uk.
