The council has partnered with South Western Railway (SWR) to provide approximately 50 secure cycle parking spaces in the vicinity of Woking Train Station.
Funding for the cycle storage has been provided by SWR Customer and Communities Improvement Fund. This grant is specifically for providing secure bike storage for rail commuters, local workers, and residents.
Residents are being asked their views on recommendations for the cycle storage locations prior to procurement and installation.
It is expected that eight bike hangars, each housing six to eight bikes, will provide a secure and robust on-street cycle parking solution, giving cyclists peace of mind when they are away for the day or night.
There are four proposed sites, each within easy reach of the railway station:
- two hangars at the junction of The Broadway and High Street
- two hangars at Duke’s Court
- two hangars in Crown Square
- two hangars in the new Victoria Place civic space.
It is envisaged that storage space would be rented out for a nominal fee on a first come first served basis.
Consultation closes on Sunday 19 November 2023.
