Cycle hubs expansion announced

THE cycle hub at Glasgow’s Queen Street rail station is to be expanded, providing more cycle parking spaces – as part of a £2m injection into cycling funding.

The funding coincides with the upcoming UCI Cycling World Championships, taking place in Scotland, with some of it being used to install bright signage on rail carriages.

In addition, new cycle hubs are to be installed at Fort William and Inverness rail stations.

Says a media release issued by rail services operators, ScotRail, here: “In a collaborative effort to support Scotland’s cycling community, ScotRail will forge a closer working relationship with Sustrans, a leading sustainable transport charity.

“This partnership will facilitate the exchange of knowledge and expertise, ensuring a better understanding of cyclists’ requirements and fostering continuous improvement in cycling infrastructure and services across Scotland’s Railway [the colloquial term for infrastructure company, Network Rail, ScotRail, Transport Scotland and other partners and organisations].”
