More new bike storage hangers set for Myatt’s Fields

Cyclists in Myatt’s Fields are to benefit from two new Lambeth Council bike storage hangers — with one already installed.

The first store has appeared on Cromwell Road, following recent road works in the area.

The second will be installed on Knatchbull Road. Cllr Rezina Chowdhury, the cabinet member for Sustainable Lambeth and Clean Air, confirmed the improvements in answer to a question from Cllr Paul Gadsby at last month’s council meeting.

Cllr Gadsby and Cllr Annie Gallop also handed in two surveys concerning traffic problems in the ward.

Cllr Annie Gallop and Cllr Paul Gadsby said:

“It is really welcome news to see more bike storage hangers arriving in our area following the two storage spaces installed earlier this year on Paulet Road and the recent commitment from the Council to roll out more electrical charging points in Myatt’s Fields.

“There is a real demand for more sustainable transport options in our community, and we keep lobbying for more of improvements on behalf of residents.”

Residents can nominate streets that they think should have a bike hanger in Lambeth on this webpage.

New bike storage hangers set to be installed on Paulet Road

Following campaigning by local councillors, Lambeth Council has confirmed they will be installing two new bike storage hangers on Paulet Road in the next few months for the use of residents in nearby street properties and the estate.

Spaces in the new hangers will cost just £3.50 a month and are part of programme to create 250 new cycle storage spaces across the borough in the next few months, adding to the hundreds already in use.

In recent years, new hangers have been installed on a number of roads across Myatt’s Fields, including on the Myatt’s South estate, Cranmere Road, Lilford Road and a number of streets surrounding Myatt’s Fields Park.

Cllr Paul Gadsby and Cllr Annie Gallop said:

“This is great news for residents on Paulet Road who have been lobbying for many years, with councillors, for affordable cycle storage space. We do know that many other parts of the community want to see cycle hangers on their streets or estates, and we have made it a top priority to deliver more in the next few years across Myatt’s Fields.”

Lambeth Council will be contacting residents on Paulet Road soon with advice on how to apply for one of the new cycle storage spaces.
