New push-bike parking spaces coming to George Street

Finally, provision for cyclists in the St James's Street Area looks set to increase, with ten new designated parking spaces for pedal bikes in George Street.

Green councillors have long argued that the council simply must fund secure parking places for bikes, both so cyclists have somewhere to leave their bikes, and to make cycling a more attractive option as an alternative to car use in the town centre.

Finally the argument has prevailed - for the St James's Street area, anyway.

Next stop: a proper, mandatory, physically marked, cycle-lane for Edward Street so cyclists aren't tempted to choose going against the traffic - and pedstrians' expectations - in St James's Street over a dangerous, busy dual carriageway!
