Update on Cycle Parking
We recently announced that Cycle Enfield have secure an a funding award of £120,000 from Transport for London’s cycle parking improvement plan.
This will enable the Council to provide a further 180 secure cycle parking spaces to residents, protecting their bicycles from damage and theft. Bike-hangars are covered secure cycle parking units that can accommodate six bicycles, providing convenient, accessible secure cycle parking on your doorstep. They are placed on the carriageway occupying just 2.5m of parking space. Our aim is to make cycle parking as convenient as it is to park a car.
Our rolling parking programme will see these fabulous bike-hangars installed on our streets, particularly around Enfield’s new cycling infrastructure, where demand is evident and in areas where housing stock may hinder storing a bike easily, such as estates and terraced housing and converted flats.
Locations have been shortlisted and we will be writing to the community on the inform them of the proposal by the end of the month.
