Falco Continues with the Roll-out of Avanti West Coast Rail Cycle Parking Infrastructure with Key Installation at Stoke-on-Trent Station
Falco has completed a key cycle hub installation at Stoke-on-Trent station as part of a roll-out of cycle parking facilities to stations on the Avanti West Coast Rail network.
Stoke-on-Trent now joins Wigan, Crewe, Runcorn, Stockport, Carlisle, Birmingham International and Warrington Bank Quay with a new installation of the FalcoLevel-Premium+ two-tier cycle parking system coupled with the UK’s leading FalcoHub cycle hub design.
Falco installed a bespoke 17m x 4m FalcoHub cycle hub complete with 72 spaces of the FalcoLevel-Premium+ two-tier cycle rack, four Sheffield Stands, a FalcoFix 2.0 cycle repair station, LED lighting and bespoke Avanti branding graphics. In addition, Falco undertook all the civils works, contract planning under CDM as well as M&E works, providing a turnkey solution for Avanti which also covered Landlords Consent and supporting other administrative requirements under the Network Rail GRIP project process.
The scheme which got underway towards the end of last year, comprises the manufacture, supply and installation of bespoke cycle hubs and associated cycle parking infrastructure to a series of stations on the rail network, as part of a mission by the new train operating company to revolutionise cycle-rail travel.
To date, Falco has provided Avanti West Coast with over 300 cycle parking spaces, with Stafford being next on the schedule.
In addition to the Avanti West Coast scheme shown here, Falco’s rail work includes the recent completion of the roll-out of over 350 cycle parking spaces for a number of stations on the Govia Thameslink Railway network, over 600 cycle parking spaces for a number of stations on the Abellio Greater Anglia network and over 1,000 cycle parking spaces on a number of stations on the Abellio West Midlands Trains network.
The FalcoLevel-Premium+ is the UK’s leading 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.
