CYCLE PROVISION AT BIRMINGHAM NEW STREET STATION

That this House notes with dismay Network Rail's lack of foresight, imagination and vision in its planning of cycle-friendly facilities at the new New Street Station; further notes that only a total of 57 places will be provided for cycles compared with, for example, the 3,000 available at Amsterdam Centraal Station and 1,200 at Berlin Hauptbahnhof; further notes that the Dutch rail authorities plan to boost capacity nationally to 100,000 places; believes that National Rail needs a dramatic rethink in its cycle provision at New Street and all other stations; and further believes that the Government should meet Network Rail as a matter of urgency to discuss ways to increase and stimulate cycle usage and reduce dependency on car-based commuting.
