Extension of busway to new railway station at Chesterton

The planning application for the new railway station at Chesterton was published a few days ago by Cambridgeshire County Council. You can view it here.

It includes erection of a station building, platforms, footbridge, lifts, car and cycle parking, and new vehicle access from Cowley Road.

An extension of the guided busway  will be built from Milton Road to the new station.

  1. Be interesting to know the time-penalty for buses going via the new station, and whether all buses will go that way. Perhaps not all peak-hour buses?

  2. It would be quite handy if St Ives had a quick bus to the railway station. But will the bus companies decide that nobody wants to travel by bus after mid evening, as the current timetable to/from Huntingdon Station assumes. And indeed, the published service B timetable gives no indication that the Hinchingbrooke buses pass close to the railway station. Don't they want the custom from rail travellers? If all buses go in and out of the new Chesterton station, that will add on 5 or 10 minutes to the Cambridge-St Ives journey for the service A, I guess.
