1 Car = 10 Bikes in Lower Marsh

Pop down to Lower Marsh on your bike and you can make use of Lambeth's new car shaped cycle parking: 1 car = 10 bikes.

You may have seen these at an event before but Lambeth are the first to install it on street for regular use rather than for an event. It will be in Lower Marsh for one month rather than permanently because of the forthcoming regeneration scheme.

Richard Ambler, Lambeth's Cycling Officer, says, "Lower Marsh is a good test bed because it has high cycle parking stress and very limited footway space. It is also a good way of testing demand before installing something more permanent. However, I’d like to see if we can install a perment one of these somewhere else in the borough."

Lambeth Council are asking for feedback to be emailed to
