Network Rail has announced that it has been working closely with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority to make proposals for a new station in Soham.
The proposals, which are currently in development, include a new platform, footbridge and car park facilities on the site of the former Soham station.
The former station close in 1965, and building a new station would reconnect the town with the rail network and help with jobs and investment in the town.
Network Rail is to 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.
The community drop-in events will be held in the Ross Peers sports centre at the following times:
- Tuesday 26 February between 4 pm and 8 pm
- Wednesday 27 February between 10 am and 2 pm
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.
