The award-winning and popular Bikehangar units have been installed in Crayford Road in St George's ward, and Hanley Road in Tollington ward. The Crayford Road unit has been installed on a built-out kerb near the junction with Tabley Road, out of the way of pedestrians. Another Bikehangar has been installed outside Shelley Court in Hanley Road, taking up just half a car parking space.
The provision of secure on-street cycle parking will provide peace of mind and encourage more residents to take up cycling, which is healthier and better for the environment. If the pilot is successful and we can obtain external funding, this could pave the way for more Bikehangars in our residential streets.
The addition of Bikehangars compliments the secure bicycle storage already available on many Islington estates, as well as the cycle stands that accommodate more than 700 bicycles around the borough for residents and visitors alike.
