Cambridge: Biggest Cycle Park In UK
Plans to build the UK's biggest cycle park at Cambridge Train Station have taken another step forward.
Developers Brookgate have submitted a planning application for a three thousand space cycle park as part of a multi-million pound redevelopment of the area.
If approved, the cycle park will form part of a new transport interchange at the station and be operated by train company Greater Anglia.
A cycle shop and cycle hire store are also planned as part of the cycle park.
The planning application also includes a 230-bedroom hotel above the cycle park, along with new retail or restaurant units fronting onto station square.
Sven Töpel, Chief Executive of Brookgate, said: "We have been working closely with the council and Greater Anglia to come up with a scheme that addresses the substantial demand for more cycle parking spaces at Cambridge station.
A new station square and transport interchange are important benefits of the CB1 development, and achieving planning permission for the cycle park will be a significant step towards the delivery of our plans to create a new transport hub for the city centre."
A decision on the planning application will be made by Cambridge City Council.
The video below, put together by Brookgate, indicates what the proposed cycle park could look like.
