Plans for 50-space covered cycle store in Uckfield station car park

The new station car park in Uckfield will include a 50-space covered cycle store.

Rail operator Southern, supported by East Sussex County Council, successfully bid for £470,000 from the Department of Transport for improvements at ten stations in the county.

It has been announced that the schemes in East Sussex, part of a £14.5 million programme nationally for 2015-16, will receive additional funding from the county council.

Cllr Carl Maynard, county council lead member for transport and environment said: “We are delighted that Southern has secured this funding and look forward to working in partnership with them to deliver the schemes.

“With new housing and jobs coming to the county, it’s more important than ever that we can improve access to rail stations and help make cycling a realistic and attractive ‘door to door’ sustainable travel option for their everyday journeys.

“These schemes tie in with our commitment to delivering improved walking and cycling facilities, with the key benefit of supporting local economic growth, along with improvements to health and wellbeing and the environment.”

The county council says the new 50-space covered cycling store will be built at Uckfield in the new station car park currently under construction.

More spaces will also be provided at Bexhill, Newhaven, Hampden Park, Polegate, Rye, Crowborough, Seaford, Glynde and Bishopstone.
