CYCLISTS have welcomed more than 100 new parking spaces provided at St Albans City Station.
They have praised train operators First Capital Connect (FCC) for installing the lion's share at St Albans of the 675 extra cycle spaces being provided across 30 stations.
Cyclist and former spokesperson for the St Albans Cycle Users Group, Peter Wares, said that for years the supply of secure sheltered cycle parking facilities at the station had lagged behind demand.
He added: "The unsightly sight of cycles chained to railings and lamp posts around the station site in the past has helped push First Capital Connect into providing improved cycle parking facilities in their effort to smarten up the station's forecourt."
