Rye railway station is to get new cycle shelters with 30 new spaces.

Rye is among ten stations in the county to benefit following Rail operator Southern, supported by East Sussex County Council, successfully bidding for £470,000 from the Department for Transport for improvements.

Rye station will also get improved CCTV, lighting and new signage.

The schemes in East Sussex, part of a £14.5 million national and will receive additional funding from the county council.

Cllr Carl Maynard said: “We are delighted Southern has secured this funding .

“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 to make cycling a realistic and attractive ‘door to door’ sustainable travel option for their everyday journeys.”
