Greater Anglia has won the Station of the Year award at the 2016 National Cycle-Rail awards for its new Cambridge CyclePoint facility, opened earlier this year.
The purpose-built complex offers 2850 safe and secure spaces undercover covered by CCTV, open 24 hours a day, free of charge. It is the biggest facility of its type at a UK rail station, and has tripled the cycle parking capacity at the station.
Spread over three floors, it also has a retail outlet operated by Rutland Cycling, providing maintenance, cycle hire, cycle accessories and cycle sales.
The judges for the awards praised the project, saying that “it is the flagship station for UK cycle-rail and our first entry into the scale of facility seen in Northern Europe. It speaks for itself, and Greater Anglia should be proud of what they have achieved.”
