Railway experts term Cambridge rail station the best station in the UK

 Saturday, October 14, 2017 


Cambridge-North-railwayThe Cambridge Station continues to be the limelight’s favorite allure following a £4 million facelift.


Last year the new ‘public plaza’ of the station opened after two-and-half-years, with a new-look ticket hall coming a little while later. Now this station has been named as the ‘Station of the Year’ by a panel of railway experts for the second year in a row.


The new-look hall is right now twice the size as before.


Currently it includes an open-air counter service, more ticket windows and improvements to the customer information screens. The CBI square now includes a brand new Sainsbury’s supermarket, many coffee shops, the Station Tavern pub and also a new Ibis hotel. A second hotel, the Tamburlaine has since opened on Station Road.


Changes to the entrance of the station also comprises new access routes for buses, taxis, cyclists.


New accessible toilet and baby changing facilities have also been constructed. Last year Cambridge also received the leading spot in the national contest after the opening of the CyclePoint bike park that offers covered storage for more than 2,800 bicycles.


The transformation was conducted by Greater Anglia, a train operator in partnership with Network Rail, developers Brookgate, Cambridge City Council and Cambridgeshire County Council.


This award from the National Transport Awards comes a month after Cambridge beats violent competition from Birmingham International, Derby and Ipswich stations to win Large Station of the Year at the National Rail Awards.
