Passengers catching trains from two Black Country rail stations have been provided with new bicycle storage facilities to help them get there by pedal power.
The new bike shelters have been installed at Sandwell and Dudley and at Coseley by transport authority Centro for those people keen to leave the car at home and opt for a more sustainable way of getting to the stations.
Two covered shelters to protect bikes from the elements have been installed at Sandwell and Dudley, featuring ten hoops to provide secure storage for up to 20 bikes.
The new bicycle storage at Coseley includes five hoops for up to 10 bikes.
Centro chairman Cllr Angus Adams said:
“One of our main priorities at Centro is to encourage passengers to leave their cars at home and use more sustainable methods of travel.
“By providing these facilities we hope more people will cycle to train stations which is not only much more environmentally friendly but will also reduce traffic and help keep them fit and healthy.”
The shelters at Sandwell and Dudley were supplied and installed by Lock-It-Safe and the facility at Coseley was provided by Broxap.
