Cycle parking mobility hubs and facilities

The issue  

A barrier to people cycling can be the lack of secure cycle parking areas. This can affect people wanting to park their bicycle temporarily, but it can also be a deterrent for people who do not have the space to keep a bicycle at home.

The scheme  

Enhancements to cycling in this scheme include:  

  • Provision of secure, covered cycle hubs at transport interchanges, with the potential for manned security at major hubs 
  • Hubs can give many secure spaces including CCTV, lighting, electrical charging points, bicycle repair stands, pumps and 24 hour access with key cards 
  • Establishment of residential cycle parking facilities, particularly in areas of terraced housing 

The outcome  

  • New and improve cycle parking mobility hubs and secure facilities 
  • Secure parking for residents who think they do not have room to store their own bike
