We have been working to look at the possibilities for delivering a new station to serve the community of Soham in East Cambridgeshire.
A new station would help to reconnect the town with the rail network, as well as help improve prospects for economic growth, jobs and investment in the area.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority has formally commissioned us to develop options and assess what is required to deliver the railway station and what is needed to make sure the provision of a station delivers value for money for the initial investment.

The proposals for the new station are currently in development and work on the initial design is due to be complete in July this year. The proposals include a new station platform and car park facilities on the site of a former Soham station which closed in 1965.
The early design work for the new station includes the potential to allow provision to allow passive provision for a second platform and footbridge to be constructed if a second track is added to the line as part of a future project.
Soham Public Information Event
We will be holding a public information event on 26 and 27 February to share the current plans on the proposals for a new station. Local residents and businesses will be able to find out more about the project and talk to members of the project team to raise any questions about the proposals.
The public information event will be held in the Ross Peters sports centre at the following times:
26 February 16:00 - 20:00
27 February 10:00 - 14:00
