Question

In 2011 Transport for London removed cycle parking facilities in order to install ticket barriers outside Brockley Station in Lewisham. Constituents have complained there is not adequate space for cycle storage and at least 20 bikes are attached to various railings and barriers around the station. Will the Mayor respond to calls to reinstate the facilities for those parking their bikes at the station?

The cycle rack was temporarily removed in November 2011 while automatic tickets gates were installed. Unfortunately, the rack's reinstallation was delayed because of the proximity of a high pressure gas main.

A suitable new location has now been found and, subject to receiving the necessary permissions from Network Rail, a new rack should be in place within months.
