Work to build a station for the town is expected to start next month with a completion date set for December 2008.
Local firm Mainland contractors secured the £1.8M contract for the support infrastructure this week. The station itself will be built by Network Rail using prefabricated components.
The railway lines are already in place for the new route from Kettering and Corby to London St Pancras but are currently only used for freight.
The new station will be built next to the site of the old station, which closed in 1966 and reopened for a brief period at the end of the 1980s.
Corby Borough Council, East Midlands Development Agency, East Midlands Trains, English Partnerships, Network Rail and North Northants Development Company are working togetother on the project.
