Station cycle parking

This article was published in 2014, in Newsletter 114.

Cambridge Science Park station, in north Chesterton, is now not expected to open until 2016, but we’ve heard that the new cycle park/hotel at the existing station should be open before that date.

Of course this means there will be lots of disruption to cycle parking, walking and cycle routes, as well as car parking, over the next eighteen months.

Station Cycles has now closed, and it may be that by the time you read this the building will have been demolished. StreetSure/BellSure have announced that they have won a contract to supply double-deck racks for one thousand cycle spaces which will be delivered during June, but these are for an ‘interim’ arrangement. A significant number of the existing Sheffield racks will shortly be removed and the new racks used to supply capacity in a temporary location.

The Campaign expects to meet with the developers and Abellio Greater Anglia in the near future. We hope then to be in a position to give more details of the timeline for these temporary changes.
