Having been discussed for some time a bike share scheme is set to start on our streets this summer. A three year contract has been awarded to Hourbike who run other schemes including Oxford and Reading. Bikes will be available from 50 hubs across the city – and one of those hubs will be at London Road Station. Drara members met with council officers to discuss the best siting for the hub – and were successful in ensuring the proposed site has been moved – from outside homes on the west side of Shaftsbury Place to the north end, outside the station. Prior to installation of the hub a Traffic Regulation Order is required and a planning notice is currently displayed outside the station. Any comments are needed by Feburary 10th.
