Installation of a new £1.1 million purpose-built secure cycle hub at Chatham Railway Station is currently underway.
Commissioned by Southeastern Rail, the new hub is being built on disused land close to the railway station in Chatham town centre.
The purpose-built cycle hub has been designed and fabricated by Lock-it Safe. Gyoury Self has provided engineering input for the foundations, retaining walls and drainage. The main contractor is WPB Contractors Ltd.
The single-storey, steel-framed cycle hub will provide nearly 300 cycle spaces and include a ‘swipe card’ entry system, electric bike charging points, a bike repair stand with tools, bike pump and additional CCTV.
The hub will complement 13.6 km of new cycle routes across the Medway area to enable safer travel for cyclists.
“The opportunity to use a sustainable transport mode to get to and from the station is very important to our passengers, who not only want to be reassured that their bike has a space available, but that it will be safe and secure while they undertake their journeys, and that other facilities will be on hand to maintain and repair their bike when they need it. David Wornham, Passenger Services Director for Southeastern
