Bikehangar consultations are out!

Islington has just put up a raft of public consultations about the 18 bikehangars they are planning to install later this summer. We’ve been waiting a LONG time for this, and the day has finally arrived!

There are notices on lamp posts near the proposed sites which say that the end of the consultation period was Friday November 10.  We could actually see one or two on the streets soon! (Dated November 12)

While the council put two 6-space units up last year, these new ones are different. The new units are made by Asgard, and have a more angular look. Most importantly, these units are all going to be installed in car parking spaces. Islington has been reluctant to do this for years, so this marks a positive and very welcome change. Islington will join Lambeth, Southwark, Haringey and, of course, Hackney in providing secure, on-street cycle parking for residents.

The consultations are running through 15 July, so you only have a couple of weeks to let Islington know your thoughts on their plans. Here’s a map of the locations with links to the relevant consultation:

Are there any near where you live? Let Islington know you support it by clicking on the location and filling out the SurveyMonkey form for that bikehangar.

We’re almost there! These 108 spaces are just the beginning.
