More cycle parking at Lancaster railway station

Cycle parking provision at Lancaster railway station has been expanded and improved with no fewer than 25 new covered cycle stands (each with capacity for 2 bikes) having appeared at the station in recent days.

The racks are situated on Platform 5, the nearest to the booking office and “town side” entrance, and replace a much smaller number of uncovered stands.

At the same time the existing stands on Platform 3 (for north-bound trains) have been renewed and additional secure cycle-lockers have appeared on both platforms.

 Virgin Trains, which manages the station, recently had its franchise to operate the West Coast Main Line extended for a further four years and in doing so had to commit to a number of improvements to services and facilities for passengers.
