March rail station is to get 50 extra cycling spaces thanks to an upgrade funded by Fenland District Council (FDC) and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA).

The funding, which comes from the Department for Transport's Cycle Rail Programme and local authorities, will be spent on installing extra cycle spaces and improving lighting and CCTV.

The upgrade is part of £1 million worth of improvements across Cambridgeshire, Essex and Hertfordshire.
