New cycling facilities at rail stations

New cycling facilities at rail stations
People in the UK are to be encouraged to cycle by a new government initiative investing in rail stations.

A £14 million package will transform stations into cycle-friendly areas, with 10,000 extra cycle park spaces being created.

Also, ten major rail stations will be turned into Cycle Hubs, where secure covered parking, retail and repair, cycle hire and information are all available.

In order to encourage green transportation further, approximately 350 rail stations will get a share of £3 million to introduce additional cycle parking spaces.

Train operators Merseyrail, Northern Rail, South West Trains and Virgin Trains will also get funding to alter their own cycle operations.

Andrew Adonis, the transport secretary, said: "More and more people are turning to cycling as a healthy, green and convenient way to travel - I want to encourage this choice.

"The aim of the programmes announced today is to boost the significant number of people cycling to catch their train. This will tackle congestion, promote rail travel and help people develop healthier lifestyles and protect the environment."

London St Pancras, Leeds, Hull, London Waterloo, Grimsby, London Victoria, Liverpool Lime Street, York, Sheffield and Scunthorpe will all become Cycle Hubs.
