Falco Provides Cycle Parking Infrastructure to Winslow Station as it Re-Joins the Railway Network After 55 Years
Winslow’s brand new railway station has received a huge cycling boost after Falco manufactured and installed a series of 68 cycle parking spaces with associated cycle canopies this month.
The new station is located on the western outskirts of the town, at the junction of Buckingham Road and is being built for Winslow as part of the East West Rail project, which is to re-establish the route between Oxford and Cambridge.
As part of the new development, Falco installed a series of 68 spaces of the UK’s best-selling two-tier cycle rack, combined with 15m of the open and spacious FalcoRail cycle canopy, providing cycle-rail users with everything they might need as part of their daily commute.
Two key products of the scheme are the tried and tested FalcoLevel-Premium+ two-tier cycle parking system and the EN 1090 FalcoRail cycle canopy, which have been used throughout the railway 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+ two tier cycle racks incorporate an integral gas strut to enable easier lifting of heavier bikes as well as additional locking points so that cyclists have multiple security points for their bikes.
Once up and running, Winslow Station will become a stop on the new East West Rail line between Oxford, Milton Keynes and Cambridge.
In addition, Winslow is only one of hundreds of key UK-wide stations to receive Falco cycle parking in recent months, with major installations also including flagship cycle parking infrastructure for Manchester Piccadilly Station, a bespoke cycle hub for Kenley Station, cycle shelters for Uttoxeter, Boston and Long Eaton Stations and a flagship cycle hub at Walkden Station.
