Cambridge Science Park railway station (or Chesterton railway station) is a proposed railway station that would be located in the Cambridge suburb of Chesterton, close to Cambridge Science Park. The official proposal from Cambridgeshire County Council, which has the backing of the rail industry, is to locate the station at Chesterton Sidings on the Fen Line, which runs from Cambridge to King's Lynn. The station would connect to the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway, provide an interchange with Park & Ride and for local Stagecoach bus services. Current plans proposed that construction would start in 2014 and that the station would be operational by 2015.

“You are bothered, I suppose, by the idea that you cant possibly believe in miracles and mysteries, and therefore cant make a good wife for Hazard. You might just as well make yourself unhappy by doubting whether you would make a good wife to me because you cant believe the first axiom in Euclid. There is no science which does not begin by requiring you to believe the incredible.”
