After almost a year of planning, Park Street Cycle Park is set to open during March 2002. You can find it in Level A of the Park Street multi-storey car park. There are over 200 free cycle parking spaces and another 53 cycle lockers that are available for hire. The new cycle park will be easy to find, as it is well signposted by cycle-in-a-D-lock symbols which are exclusive (so far) to Cambridge. The cycle park lies on the route to the city centre from Jesus Green. It should be a much more secure place to leave a bike for the whole day than the street: it is supervised by security personnel and covered by CCTV. The cycle park will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are special cycle racks for tandems and bikes with trailers. A full launch event is planned for May, so expect a full report in the next Newsletter.
|Undercover racks are installed where there were once car parking spaces inside Park Street car park.
|Lockers can also be rented for a period. This would suit regular users, for example people working within walking distance.
