I am informed by Crossrail, Southeastern and Network Rail that increasing the number of bicycle parking bays available at Abbey Wood temporary rail station is not possible due to concerns around station safety, the station evacuation procedure and future access requirements. Network Rail are, however, currently in discussions with LB Greenwich and LB Bexley around whether bicycle parking spaces can be installed outside of the station footprint in the public realm in the immediate term. In March through your High Street Fund you awarded £150,000 to these boroughs to 'futureproof Wilton Road for the arrival of Crossrail, and support major housing growth planned for the immediate area'. Do you agree that a portion of these funds should be allocated specifically to the provision of more cycle parking spaces so that the demand for bike parking here - which currently hugely outstrips supply - is met?
