    THE BIKE PORT AT THE NLA, LONDON

    • SECTOR: Architecture/Design
    • CLIENT: New London Architecture
    • YEAR: 2017
    • LOCATION: LONDON, UK

    In August 2017, our Bike Port took up residence at the NLA at The Building Centre in central London.  This eye-catching design is visible from a distance, sending out a clear message – space for cycling.

    Sturdy and easy to assemble, the Bike Port is a great solution for both permanent and temporary cycling. It can also be used by local councils to test the demand for cycle parking in different areas.

    Peter Murray, Chairman of the NLA, said:

    “With the Mayor of London focusing on healthier streets it’s essential there are plenty of places to park your bike. What is great about this giant is that it provides a really strong message about the positive effects and efficiency of cycling in the city.”

    The installation of our Bike Port coincided with a fantastic event, ‘The Active Travel Summit’ hosted by the NLA. This event saw London’s Walking and Cycling Commissioner Will Norman joined by Transport for London, London Cycling Campaign, Cross River Partnership and a panel of architects, engineers and consultants to assess the Mayor’s 25-year transport strategy and the plans for delivering Healthy Streets in the capital.

    It was a pleasure to have our new design featured at a Healthy Streets focused event and provide delegates with the opportunity to securely park their bikes to the Bike Port while enjoying the event.
