New railway station set to be built at Cambridge Science Park
A new rail station at Cambridge Science Park was granted planning permission by the Cambridgeshire County Council in a bid to help shorten the journey times between the city’s main business areas and London, a news report in the local business media has revealed.
The station, designed by Atkins, will make it possible for passengers to travel between Science Park, St John’s Innovation Centre and the Cambridge Business Park to London in just around 30 minutes.
The scheme will include a new station building with an integrated footbridge linking to three platforms and other rail infrastructure to be used by around 3,000 passengers a day, as well as a high quality public square, pedestrian and cycle access routes, plus cycle parking for 1,000 bicycle, a taxi drop-off and pick-up area and a 450-space car park with disabled and short stay parking.
Considering the specific nature of the building and its future use, installing a solid and reliable access control system might be a very good idea, and this is specifically where Access Control UK could put its extensive experience to very good use.
