The new Station Square at Cambridge Rail Station is to open next week.
The £4m development is to open on Monday (October 17) following a two-and-a-half year renovation.
Customers using the station will notice a change in access, with routes to the taxi rank, disabled parking and short stay parking areas switched to the new permanent route via Tenison Road and Great Northern Road.
The new-look square is being described as a ‘focal point for the community’ by rail chiefs. It will include a Sainsbury’s, Pret a Mange and Caffe Nero.
Paul Stannard, area customer service manager for Abellio Greater Anglia, said: “I am very pleased that work at the station is nearing completion and that access to the station will improve once the Station Square opens on Monday.
