The UK’s latest railway station, Cambridge North, is still seeing a large growth in passenger numbers six months after it opened in May.
Over 75,000 people have used the station since opening day, with almost 5,000 people passing through during the week of September 24, that’s almost double that of the first week.
Cambridge North cost £50 million and was opened on Sunday May 21.
A Greater Anglia spokesman said: “Passenger numbers have continued to grow above expectations since the station opened, demonstrating its importance as a vital point of access to the business park, which was previously only accessed by road.”
“It is anticipated that the station will encourage new businesses to the area in the future as well as aid the expansion of Science Park and St John’s Innovation Centre.”
