Cost of extending platform at Waterbeach Station

The request was partially successful.

Dear Network Rail

It has been acknowledged that the Waterbeach to Kings Cross line is at capacity and the busiest in the Eastern Region. The village is also seeing expansions in housing as are the neighbouring villages with more and more commuters accessing Waterbeach Station. The rapid increase in passengers is set to continue.

The recent incidents of people not being able to get on commuter trains and young school girls getting pushed off full carriages has been reported in the Cambridge News but I understand from the article it is too expensive to extend the platform.

Please can you confirm how much it costs to extend the platform please?

Secondly, I also understand that a business case has been done which rules out extending the good yards next to Waterbeach station as extra much needed parking on grounds of cost.

I would like to have a copy of that business case please together with the costs and anticipated annual revenues for the carpark extension.

Thankyou.
