#12935: New cycle stands on King’s Parade

New cycle stands on King’s Parade were in heavy use immediately after installation.

For the first time, public cycle parking has been provided on King’s Parade. Four very welcome new stands, for eight cycles, have been installed. This was a direct result of an objection by the Cycling Campaign to a traffic scheme. As we predicted, the stands were being used solidly, with no space remaining, within a day of their installation.

Thank you

There is plenty of space available for more stands, including the sections where no loading or parking is permitted. There remain many cycles left insecurely against lighting columns, in the way of pedestrians.

We call on the Council to provide many more stands further along King’s Parade as soon as possible.
