Extra cycling storage coming to Lincoln train station

Cyclists planning to catch trains from Lincoln Central station will be able to use new cycle storage facilities.

The 40 new cycling spaces at the station are part of East Midlands Trains’ plans to encourage environmentally friendly transport to its stations.

The new storage facilities at Lincoln Central are due to be installed by the summer.

Neil Micklethwaite, Commercial and Customer Service Director for East Midlands Trains, said: “Not all commuters are able to cycle directly to work, but many might be able to travel part of the way by bike.

“We believe by providing an additional 40 cycling spaces, we will encourage more people to cut down on their reliance on cars and consider alternative methods of transport when travelling to and from our stations.

“We know that door-to-door journey times are a key factor for most people when deciding which mode of transport to use and there is a case to be made for how cycling, when well integrated at either end of a train trip, can help reduce overall travel times.”

“We’re committed to improving access to our stations for all users, and the new cycle facilities are part of a £10 million station investment programme that is delivering improvements right across our network.”
