Portsmouth City Council Put Two Wheels First with New Six Month FalcoPod Bike Hangar Trial
Portsmouth residents are taking advantage of a new six month Bike Hangar trial aimed at tackling the common issue of a lack of secure cycle parking facilities within residential areas.
The trial includes the popular FalcoPod Bike Hangar design and is the first of its kind in Portsmouth, which aims to adopt the same success the facility has had upon many areas throughout London, where demand for secure cycle parking is extensive.
Portsmouth City Council has introduced the scheme on eight roads to help improve air quality, make cycling a more accessible choice and encourage the use of cycling amongst its residents.
So far hangars are available in Manners Road, Lucknow Street, Eastfield Road, Addison Road, Hunter Road, Clarence Road, Guildford Road and Sultan Road.
Pictured here is Councillor Lynne Stagg unveiling the new scheme at the first Bike Hangar installation on Lucknow Street using the FalcoPod design.
Portsmouth residents can now nominate their road for a FalcoPod bike hangar in the future by visiting travel.portsmouth.gov.uk/bikehangars.
