Ealing Council reveal locations of 25 new bike hangars to be installed across the borough in the coming weeks

Ealing Council and its leader Councillor Peter Mason has announced that 25 bike hangars will be installed “in the coming weeks”. The council will charge cyclists  70p a month to use them which it says is the lowest price in London.

In a statement, Councillor Mason said: “We are planning to install another 25 of our new bike hangars in the coming weeks, with another 25 more to be installed before the end of the summer. And this is just the start. We are working towards our ambitious target of having at least 150 bike hangars by 2026.”

The 25 new hangars to be installed follow a consultation with residents in December, in which 349 people responded. The results of the consultation have helped the council to determine where to locate them.

The full list of hangars are:
Balfour Road W13 – two locations
Bayham Road W13
Brisbane Road W13
Comer Crescent UB2
Cotton Avenue W3
Dabbs Hill Lane UB5
Darwin Road W5 – two locations
Derwent Road W5
Dorset Road W5
Framfield Road W7
Grove Road W3 – two locations
Hillcrest Road W3
Lady Margaret Road UB1
Leythe Road W3
Myrtle Road W3 – two locations
Ruislip Road East UB6
Stephenson Street NW10
Temple Road W4
The Ridings W5
Valetta Road W3
Waldegrave Road W5
West End Road UB1
Woodhurst Road W3
Woodstock Ave W13

Councillor Deirdre Costigan, the council’s cabinet member for climate action, said: “We are determined to increase the number of cyclists in the borough and to help people who want to cycle but who may not have the safe and accessible storage they need. Bike hangars are a great and cheap solution, especially now that we have slashed costs from £6 per month to just 70p per month, the cheapest in London.”

She added: “When we launched our active travel charter last year we promised to work with you to make improvements and the best decisions together. In December, we asked you to tell us the locations where you would like new bike hangars installed and how you thought we should pick future locations.”

Neil Reynolds, chair of Ealing Greens told EALING.NEWS: “The placement of additional bike hangars is welcome. The pace of delivery is disappointingly slow however. This amounts to one hanger for every 13,000 residents.”
