In September 2002, the Department for Transport announced funding for 138 new cycling projects across the country.
Over £60 000 was awarded to the following projects in Cambridgeshire, all which improve cycle parking:
- WAGN Ltd: improved access for cyclists and additional cycle parking for cyclists at Cambridge Station, £16 500.
- Cambridgeshire County Council: funding for secure covered park and ride cycle storage at five park and ride stations in the county, £26 250.
- Great North Eastern Railways: cycle parking with CCTV at Peterborough Station, £7 125.
- Huntingdonshire District Council: funding for good quality cycle parking at key locations in the town centre, £16 750.
Sadly, a bid for funding to expand Cambridge’s Adult Cycle Training scheme was unsuccessful. It is hoped that a revised bid will be placed for the next round of funding.
