Falco’s Right On Track at Dundee Station26-11-2018
As part of the continued roll-out of cycle parking facilities across stations throughout Scotland, Falco recently supplied the UK’s leading two-tier cycle rack to a number of Abellio ScotRail managed stations. Pictured here is the latest architect designed, purpose built £400k cycle hub at Dundee Station. The opening of the new hub, which was featured on the BBC News, provides cyclists with up to 120 FalcoLevel-Premium+ two-tier cycle parking spaces.
Built as part of the £32m transformation of Dundee station in Scotland’s ‘fourth city’ and recently re-opened to the public in July this year, the facility boasts the latest Falco two tier cycle racks, CCTV, lighting and automatic doors. The East Coast Main Line Station is managed by Abellio ScotRail and has a passenger footfall of 1.8m people each year.
The cycle hub was funded by Dundee City Council, TACTRAN and Abellio ScotRail and builds on the great strides being made in cycling in the town, making use of the highly functional FalcoLevel-Premium+ two-tier cycle rack to add to the Falco cycle parking at the University and recently installed cycle counter at Broughty Ferry.
The two-tier cycle racks at Dundee Station is manufactured to the Dutch FietsParKeur standard for ultra secure, high quality cycle parking. The FietsParKeur standard is made up of a series of stringent assessments which aims to eliminate poorly designed, flimsy, unsecure cycle parking and increase best practice by improving the user-friendliness, sturdiness, security, durability and lifespan of cycle racks.
Moving forward, the FalcoLevel Premium+ two-tier cycle racks and FalcoRail shelters are designed to be maintenance free to provide minimal cost of ownership to the client. Additionally should there be any unforeseen damage, the modular nature of each structure means that replacing any damaged items is simple to undertake.
Over 400 UK stations have benefitted from Falco cycle parking and the FalcoLevel-Premium+ two tier cycle rack features at many of them including: Cambridge, Chelmsford, Huddersfield, Rugby, Birmingham International, Bromley South, Scarborough, Middlesbrough, Selby, Preston, Coventry and Dewsbury Stations, to name but a few.
