Mike Barry, Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Service Manager, said: “Cambridge station cycle point is used by thousands of people every day.

“We take customer feedback very seriously, and although the number of thefts remains low, we are doing all we can to reduce the number.

“We are committed to providing secure, free cycle parking across our network and have recently been awarded £1.1 million from the Department for Transport’s Cycle Rail Programme and local authorities to further improve cycle parking, including CCTV and better lighting at stations.”

There is also a bike shop on the ground floor which services bicycles and sells accessories.
