Local MP encourages passengers to “jump on their bikes"

Wednesday 11th March 2020

Local MP, Ranil Jayawardena, helped lay the foundations of SWR’s investment in new cycling facilities at Fleet station on Friday 6 March.

Mr Jayawardena helped pour concrete for the initial phase of works to start expanding the number of cycle spaces and encourage more passengers to get on their bike.

The next phase of works will see almost £800,000 spent on building a brand-new cycle hub. Cycling is already very popular at the station, so the new scheme will add over 200 extra cycle spaces for passengers to store their bikes and help them travel greener. The hub is expected to be completed by the summer.
