Construction work on the new station includes creating step free access lifts to all platforms

Together with Alstom and South Rail Systems Alliance, the North London contractor will also modify and enhance the rail infrastructure to support the new station.  

This will include remodelling the existing track layout, installing two additional track loops, enhancing the Shepreth branch junction and modifying the railway on the southern approach to Cambridge station.

Enabling works are underway, with work expected to be completed in 2025. 

Joe Kennedy, project director for Murphy: “Murphy has made significant progress over recent months completing the enabling works, commenced installation of all four platforms, station building piling and undertaken all groundworks to facilitate the track being realigned during a blockade in December.”
