After a disastrous failure to spend money allocated for it in 2004, some additional cycle parking has now been provided at the station. Two areas of publicly available racks, one of them covered and in view of CCTV cameras, have been built on areas previously in car parks. 100 extra spaces are available (about 15% more) divided between a set in the main car park alongside platform 6, and in the premier car park alongside the hotel. So far, because it isn’t immediately obvious and a touch further from the station, it has eased parking for those who have realised it is there, but no doubt it will soon fill up as more people use it.
