Here's a better piece of news, from The London Paper, 24 June:
"The Transport Secretary today criticised London's rail stations for their poor cycle facilities. Lord Adonis said Londoners were being let down by the lack of secure storage and shortage of bike racks. He said "I think we can do a lot better. There is a big job to be done but I am determined to see improvements in facilities at our stations." The minister cycled to six stations where he found crowded racks, which were often badly signposted. At London Bridge he discovered that the safest place to chain a cycle was to barbed wire. He found racks at Liverpool Street were nearly full on a Sunday and overspill facilities at Bishopsgate Piazza took him 20 minutes to locate."
Good news because it suggests we at last have a Transport Secretary (not just a junior minister with responsibility for cycling) who is going to take the subject seriously, and is prepared to cycle around London to discover the problems we all know about.Share this item
