Wandsworth Borough Council has been chosen the locations for over new cycle parking hangars based on requests from local people.
Town hall engineers were hoping to install these hangars quickly, but the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed their manufacture and delivery from the supplier. It is now hoped the 21 bike hangars will be delivered before the autumn.
The hangars can securely store up to six bikes and are accessed by people who have signed up to the scheme, paid a membership fee and been given a key. These installations are set to be followed by plans for additional hangars.
Wandsworth is already home to around three dozen hangars on local estates, while providing safe and secure bike storage for residents is a key planning condition on all new housing developments.
Transport spokesman Cllr Paul Ellis said: “Once the new hangars are in place it will be good news for bike owning residents in these streets who don’t have gardens or enough room inside their homes to securely store their bikes.
“Making it easier for local people to switch to two-wheeled transport is a key element of our commitment to tackle climate change which will be at the heart of all town hall policies between now and 2030.”
Bike hangars will be installed in the following streets:
Following a separate consultation with people living in Balham’s Fernside Road it has also been agreed to install a hangar there.
