Council removed the cycle racks in Brookley Road in late May 2023 following damage
sustained in a traffic incident. The cycle racks, located outside of Tesco
Express, were hit over the Bank holiday weekend and once the damage was
reported the racks were taped closed. The tape was subsequently removed by
cyclists parking their bikes. Despite continued heavy demand for their use
over the Bank holiday period the cycle racks have been removed due to
health and safety concerns.
The delayed Brookley
Road scheme which would see these cycle racks relocated is subject to drainage
redesign to resolve issues including pooling of water although the scheme is
still likely to go ahead in the autumn.
