A £600,000 cycle hub with spaces for more than 300 bicycles has opened at Leicester railway station.

The facilities can be used by both train passengers and other bike riders, an East Midlands Trains spokesman said.

The underground bike park also has a cycle hire section and changing facilities.

"Previous facilities were always oversubscribed - so we expect them to be very popular," Andy Moore, head of stations at East Midlands Trains, said.

The project was funded by East Midlands Trains (EMT), the Department for Transport, the Cycle Rail Working Group and Network Rail.

The £10 fee for using the hub is a one-off charge which gives unrestricted access to other EMT cycle facilities.

The train operator is also improving its cycle facilities at Alfreton, Bottesford, Chesterfield, Kettering, Mansfield, Market Harborough, Matlock, Skegness and Wellingborough.
