London Borough of Southwark is the Latest Local Authority to Receive Network of FalcoPod Bike Hangars
The London Borough of Southwark is the latest local authority to receive a network of the UK’s most user-friendly bike hangar design - the FalcoPod. Falco manufactured, supplied and installed a total of 72 units with manual key access, four units with smart mobile app access and three cycle hubs with smart mobile app access across the borough.
Falco is delighted to be working with the Greater London Council to roll-out their next phase of residential bike hangars. The FalcoPods were installed this Autumn and residents from the borough are now enjoying access to the latest on-street bike hangars.
The images attached show the manual and smart bike hangar installations, supplied in a vibrant leaf green RAL colour, installed across Southwark at locations including Reynolds Road, Scylla Road, Shawbury Road, Fenham Road and Grove Hill Road.
In addition to the bike hangars, three hardwood clad cycle hubs complete with FalcoLevel-Eco two-tier cycle racks and smart mobile access were installed to accommodate a total of 60 bikes, located at Bridges House, Hood House and Elmington Road.
Each mobile app bike hangar and mobile app cycle hub provides Southwark residents with quick and easy accessibility via the users smartphone.
