Cyclists in Northamptonshire can now take advantage of covered cycle storage at Kettering station after a £70,000 project reached completion.
The project, funded by East Midlands Trains and Northamptonshire County Council, sees 136 covered bike parking spaces, situated in the same area as the existing spaces.
The storage opened to the public on Monday, April 4, with area station manager for East Midlands Trains, David Oldershaw, telling the Northampton Herald Post: "Good cycle facilities are vital for people choosing to travel to the station by bike. We are delighted that this is the first of many projects planned for 2016 to improve cycle facilities at our stations.
"Over the last three years we have invested more than £2 million on major changes at Sheffield, Leicester and Derby stations.
"In 2016 we will continue to focus on more cycle projects across the network so that we can have a positive impact on cyclists using our services."
Access to the storage is by a key fob entry system, which is available for a deposit of £10.
