Network Rail has been working closely with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority to develop proposals for a new station in Soham.

The proposals, currently in development, include a new platform, footbridge and car park facilities on the site of the former Soham station, which closed in 1965. Building a new station would reconnect the town with the rail network and help to improve growth in the area, jobs and investment in the town.

Network Rail will hold community drop-in events on Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 February where residents and businesses can come along to find out more about the current plans on the proposals for a new station and ask any questions direct to the project team.

 The community drop-in events will be held in the Ross Peers sports centre at the following times:

  • Tuesday 26 February between 4pm and 8pm
  • Wednesday 27 February between 10am and 2pm

The early design work for the new station could allow for a second platform to be constructed if a second track is added to the line as part of a future project.
