Children at a primary school in Birmingham are enjoying the benefit of a West Midlands Railway scheme to install thousands of cycle spaces on its network.

The rail operator is showing its commitment to sustainable transport by installing thousands of dedicated cycle spaces at dozens of locations, including Yardley Wood station.

The modern two-tier cycle racks replace older-style secure lockers which West Midlands Railway has donated to nearby Chilcote Primary School in Hall Green.

The school will use the lockers to securely store sports equipment such as football goalposts.

What did the officials say?

Andy Camp, commercial director at West Midlands Railway, said:

“The community is at the heart of everything we do and I am delighted that we have been able to find such a good use for these lockers which may otherwise have gone to waste.

“Our cycle programme is introducing thousands of spaces across the network as we continue to work with partners across the industry to encourage sustainable transport methods.”
