Is a cycle hangar heading to your street?

By bristol247, Thursday Aug 4, 2016

Communal street bike sheds which take up one car parking space are being rolled out across neighbourhoods in Bristol.

The bike hangars will  be installed in Ashley, Bedminster, Clifton, Easton, Frome Vale, Knowle, Lawrence Hill, Southville, St George West, and Windmill Hill, after community groups had their bids accepted by TravelWest.

Bristol’s first on-road cycle hangar, a secure storage unit for six bikes, was installed on Eldon Terrace in Bedminster in March 2016.

Bristol City Council is offering grants to install the hangars in local communities through the Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF). The project has until March 2018 to be completed.

Spaces in the hangar, which takes up the place of just one car, cost £25 to rent for one year by local residents.

Pending feasibility studies, the streets which will have the hangars installed are:

Richmond Road at 2, Ashley

Mina Roadd at 227-233, Ashley

Churchlands Road, Bedminster

Chessel Street, Bedminster

Cornwallis Crescent, Clifton
