    Our Car Bike Ports form part of the Hackneys first shared space

    Leonard Circus, Hackney, is east London’s first example of a ā€˜shared space’ bringing together pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles in a harmonious environment. The shared space scheme was completed by VolkerHighways and London Borough of Hackney’s highways team.

    The Council used a Dutch design model to transform Leonard Circus into an attractive, people-orientated brick and granite public place.

    Several of our Car Bike PortsĀ haveĀ beenĀ included in theĀ re-development of the area,Ā providing increased cycle storage space as well asĀ reducing street clutter. The scheme has received lots of positive attention sinceĀ the originalĀ plans were mentioned earlierĀ this year. So much so, it has been shortlisted for the Design Award and the People’s Choice Award at this year’s Hackney Design Awards 2014. The winner will be announced on the 26th November 2014.

    If you have a project in mind, contact us to find out more about how our Car Bike Ports could be used.
