Falco Continues the Roll-out of Abellio ScotRail Cycle Parking Facilities
Falco continues with the roll out of the next tranche of cycle parking facilities across Abellio ScotRails’ franchised network of over 300 stations across Scotland. Pictured here are seven of the latest installations at Dyce, Perth, Girvan, Beauly, Prestwick, Partick Central and Blantyre Stations!
Two key products of this tranche of the Abellio ScotRail Cycle Innovation Plan include the FalcoRail-Low cycle canopy and the traditional Toaster cycle rack as demonstrated here at Girvan, Beauly, Prestwick and Blantyre stations.
Falco has already installed a total of 1,852 cycle parking spaces and associated canopies at over 40 stations on the Abellio ScotRail network including other recent installations at Haymarket, Elgin, Livingston North, Inverkeithing, Gourock, Linlithgow, North Berwick, Patterton, Howwood and Kirkcaldy stations.
Transport Scotland awarded Dutch passenger transport group Abellio the opportunity to run the next ScotRail franchise in October 2014. A key element of the Abellio bid was to increase intermodal transport and central to this was a commitment to install over 3,500 cycle parking spaces within the first three years to increase cycle usage from 3% to 10%. Abellio’s commitment to deliver the UK’s most extensive cycle/rail network includes:
- £1.6m investment in more cycle parking spaces to have 4,600 by 2017-18.
- New, fully staffed Dutch style “CyclePoints” at the key city hubs, “CycleParks+” at five others and CycleParks at other stations.
