New Cycle Stands at Aberdeen Railway Station

New Cycle Stands at Aberdeen Railway Station

The first results of ACF’s project “Take a stand” are now visible.
After discussions with First-Scotrail, Aberdeen railway station now
has 8 Sheffield stands outside the station. Not quite as many as we
wanted, nor at our ideal prefered location but it is a step in the
right direction.

The stands are to the right of the steps that lead down to the station
forecourt from the Pelican crossing. Feel free to send feedback on them to:

takeastand@aberdeencycleforum.org.uk

We are continuing discussions with First-Scotrail over more, and hopeully geting a cover in place, these will of course be easier if the original batch are used!
In addition, we are in communication with a number of the locations identified
during the survey, this is a long process but we are
hopeful of encuraging the owners at some of the other “worst loctions in Aberdeen” to install stands.

Launched in June this year , “Take a Stand” is designed to identify
privately owned locations (e.g. shops, retail parks etc.) where
abscent or poor cycle parking facilities were detering people from
travelling by bike within the city. To learn more and to nominate
your own sites Visit our main Take a Stand page .
