Cyclists who catch the train now have more spaces for their bikes.

Haddenham and Thame Parkway gets up to 40 bikes parked up at the station each day.

But spaces have now been increased from 38 to 110 with the addition of a new cycle park, unveiled yesterday by Haddenham Village Society’s vice chairman Sir Roderick Floud.

The park is part of a joint project run by Bucks County Council - which contributed £30,000 - with help from Chiltern Railways and sustainable travel charity Sustrans.

Margaret Aston, local county council member, said: “I’m delighted. I’d like to encourage travellers to use them, particularly local residents.”

Cabinet member for transport Ruth Vigor-Hedderly said: “We are delighted to be able to make these improvements to the cycle parking to make it easier for cyclists to get to and from the station.”
