Two 40-space secure cycle facilities have been installed at Cockcroft and Clifford Whitworth buildings.

The facilities are the latest part of the University’s Travel Plan strategy, which is aimed at encouraging and facilitating sustainable travel.

Andy Binder, Travel & Transport Officer, Environment & Sustainability, said: “Access control on the shelters is now in place. Anybody who wants access to them should go to Maxwell Reception, where their ID cards will be activated to allow entry.”

The access control will be activated from Tuesday, 7 May.

The back gate to Maxwell Well is also being secured to provide additional security to the 48-space cycle shelter that was installed there earlier this year. All access to the Well – for pedestrians and cyclists – must then be gained from the front entrance ramp.

The University Bicycle User Group also met on Thursday to discuss future cycling improvements on campus to support existing users but also to facilitate those who want to cycle more in the future.
