Home Case Studies Falco Completes Roll-out of Cycle Parking Infrastructure for Govia Thameslink Railway

Falco has completed the roll-out of a new tranche of over 350 cycle parking facilities across a number of Govia Thameslink Railway’s (GTR) stations. Pictured here are several of the latest installations including; Stevenage, Waterbeach, Bayford, Littleport, New Southgate, Knebworth, Ashwell & Morden, Watton at Stone and Luton Parkway stations.

The scheme which got underway earlier this year during lockdown and involved the design manufacture, supply and installation of a number of different cycle parking racks and stands including the FalcoLevel two tier, the FalcoVert semi-vertical rack and traditional Sheffield stands, all with associated canopies. Additionally the provision of cycle repair and maintenance stations will allow commuters to carry out cycle maintenance whilst on the go.

In addition to the GTR scheme shown here, Falco has just completed the rollout of over 600 cycle parking spaces for a number of stations on the Abellio Greater Anglia franchise and over 1,000 cycle parking spaces for a number of stations on the Abellio West Midlands Trains franchise.

Two key products of the GTR scheme are the tried and tested FalcoLevel-Premium+ two-tier cycle parking system which meets the stringent ‘FietsParKeur’ cycle rack standard and the EN 1090 accredited FalcoRail cycle canopy, which have been used throughout the Abellio Greater Anglia network to give cyclists using the railway the same experience across the region’s stations. When combined together, the Falco facilities create the ultimate cycle park - providing cyclists with high levels of cycle security in a spacious contemporary canopy design.

The FalcoLevel-Premium+ is an ingenious two-tier cycle rack designed to accommodate twice as many cycles within the same space restraints or any traditional cycle rack or stand. Moving forward, the two-tier cycle racks are designed to be maintenance free to provide minimal cost of ownership to the client (only occasional cleaning required). Additionally should there be any unforeseen damage, the modular nature of each structure means that replacing any damaged items is simple and easy to undertake.
