Cyclists using Melton Station are set to benefit from improved facilities thanks to investment from the Department for Transport.

East Midlands Trains has been awarded £1.4 million to invest in facilities at 16 stations, including Melton. Melton Station will receive funding for an extra 20 cycle racks, a protective cover for cycles and CCTV. David Oldershaw, Leicestershire area station manager, said: “Good cycle facilities are vital for people choosing to travel to our stations by bike. This investment means more passengers will be able to cycle to our stations with confidence their bikes will be safe until they return.”
