It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke’s campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus or one of a few purpose-built cycle routes.
The city’s mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all. Another new railway station, Cambridge South has been proposed and is expected to be nearby Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Biomedical Campus.
