5. Bike Hangars.

News from Southwark Council.

We know there is a massive demand for safe bike storage across Southwark. We have an ongoing programme to roll out new rentable bike hangars.

We want to know how many people are interested in having access to a bike hangar in their area, and what the most requested locations are. All the information you provide here will help us prioritise locations for hangars we already have ready to go, as well as plan more locations for the future.

We have already added some locations on the map, where residents have previously made requests. If you support these locations, let us know by clicking on the pin and giving it a thumbs up. Or make your own suggestions for suitable locations. We can put bike hangars directly on the road or in other suitable flat locations in public spaces and on estates and developments.

We would like to hear from you if you have ideas for other forms of bike storage, as well as support for hangars. Go to https://cyclehangarsinsouthwark.commonplace.is/ for more information or to comment.
