Greater Anglia has won the Station of the Year award at the 2016 National Cycle-Rail awards for its new Cambridge CyclePoint facility, opened earlier this year.

The purpose-built complex offers 2850 safe and secure spaces undercover covered by CCTV, open 24 hours a day, free of charge. It is the biggest facility of its type at a UK rail station, and has tripled the cycle parking capacity at the station.

Spread over three floors, it also has a retail outlet operated by Rutland Cycling, providing maintenance, cycle hire, cycle accessories and cycle sales.

The judges for the awards praised the project, saying that "it is the flagship station for UK cycle-rail and our first entry into the scale of facility seen in Northern Europe. It speaks for itself, and Greater Anglia should be proud of what they have achieved."

David Middlemiss, managing director of Rutland Cycling, said: “We believe passionately that for people to make cycling part of their daily lives, you’ve got to make it safe, convenient and easy. As a local, independent business, we’re enormously proud to be part of Cambridge’s CyclePoint, and we’re delighted it has been recognised with this national award. CyclePoint is the UK’s biggest, best cycle park, it’s safe and free to use, and supports commuters with repairs, servicing, sales and cycle hire – it really has set the standard for the way integrated travel should work.” 

"We're delighted to have received this national award for Cambridge CyclePoint," commented Jamie Burles, managing director for Greater Anglia. "It is a ground-breaking project that sets a new standard for cycle parking at rail stations in the UK. I would like to thank our main partners in the project, Network Rail and Brookgate, other key contributors and supporters – including the Department for Transport – and the members of the Greater Anglia team, who have all helped deliver a world-class facility. We shall continue to improve cycle-rail facilities across our new franchise's network ."
