Westgate – statement on seeming lack of cycle spaces

We have been trying to find out where the advertised cycle parking spaces are at the new Westgate and have received the following statement from Sara Fuge

We are adding a note onto our web-site and will have a plan made to show where the cycle spaces are in. The note is as below and the LOR team are aware of the importance of getting the stands in. – work starts again to finish the public realm on Monday and more cycle spaces will go in from then. The position at the moment is as below:-

“There are presently around 180 spaces in the immediate vicinity of the scheme. These can be found on Thames Street and Norfolk Street around the John Lewis store and on Old Greyfriars Street where it meets Faulkner Street and Pike Terrace and existing spaces are on St Ebbe’s Street and Penny Farthing Place. As work continues to complete the new public realm early next week the full number of cycle parking stands will be added very quickly. We apologise again for any inconvenience and are working hard to address this issue.”

We will keep everyone up to date on progress.
