City centre cycle parking project

Cambridge City Council's Environment Scrutiny Committee have approved work to provide up to 700 cycle parking spaces and the drawing up of a feasibility study on a third cycle park in the city centre.

Chair, Martin Lucas-Smith, said:

"The most cost-effective way to enable more people to access the city centre is to provide more cycle parking. It is excellent news that Cambridge city centre will see up to 700 new cycle parking places over the coming year. We've campaigned in recent years to see the considerable shortage addressed. By working with the City Council on their Liaison Group, the case we've made has been convincingly accepted."

David Earl, Committee member, added:

"The need for a third cycle park, following on from the success of the Park Street and Grand Arcade cycle parks, is increasingly urgent. The City Council's agreement to commence work on a full feasibility study is the first important step. We've suggested a possible location, and we are looking forward to taking part in the Project Board drawing up the plans."
