Speaking of the new cycle hub addition, City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, councillor Stephen Simkins, said: “The Interchange is a jewel in the crown of our city and part of the multi billion pound regeneration that is taking place.

“The new cycle hub will give people more options and encourages this healthy, clean and green form of transport.

“As a city we are committed to improving our infrastructure for more sustainable transport and this scheme complements our ongoing work to improve and grow our cycling network and support our climate change agenda.

“The completed Interchange will connect train, tram, bus and cycles in one place and will provide a gateway to our city that we can all enjoy using - and be proud of.”

FalcoScandic Cycle Hub

The FalcoScandic is a new purpose built cycle hub design with a reinforced construction ideal for areas where extreme weather conditions such as heavy snow loading is a critical issue.

The FalcoScandic has been designed with a reinforced construction, over and above a traditional EN 1090 CPR compliant cycle shelter to accommodate a heavier roof load. This has resulted in the FalcoScandic being able to accommodate a maximum load capacity of 200kg per square metre!

The FalcoScandic is manufactured from a 100% recyclable galvanised steel frame structure in accordance with BS EN ISO 1461, with safety glass cladding as standard (other cladding options available on request). 

The whole shelter is a bespoke contemporary design, which features clean lines through the glass cladding and supported by stainless steel glass clamps. The steelwork is hot dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 and also meets UK structural design laws with EN 1090 accreditation.
