We had a very positive meeting on April 4th with the Station Manager of Leicester railway station re the £600K / 300 space bike park that East Midlands Trains plan to build.
Points raised included
- Personal security
- Changing / locker facilities
- Bike rack type
- Sign-up method
- Overall security
- Different type of bikes – bikes that aren’t diamond framed 2 wheelers
The good news is that East Mids Trains are overseeing this project and they seem keen to involve local cyclists in the development planning of the facility. We’re hopeful that it will be a popular, well used and high quality facility.
Both Leicester Cycle Campaign Group and East Midlands Trains have issued a press release about the investment in railway bike parking.
