A ramp which will allow disabled people and parents with buggies to use Shepreth Railway Station has now been completed.
A year ago, safety work was carried out at the village station to prevent people from wandering onto the level crossing via the London-bound platform.
This meant passengers were forced up a small flight of stairs.
During this period, platforms were virtually out of bounds for wheelchair and pushchair users.
Network Rail told the Meldreth, Shepreth and Foxton Rail User Group that a new ramp access would be provided by the end of the summer 2014, but work has only finally been finished.
Shepreth county councillor Susan van de Ven said: “The resulting ramp and new steps, plus extensive guardrails, are far more elaborate than we had anticipated, but it all works well.”
