More capacity for bicycles at Guildford station

05/28/2007 AT 10:12

A further double-decker cycle rack was installed on the loading bay at the station and a shelter was installed in the Farnham Road car park. This investment has added room for nearly 40 more cycles at the station.

Dan Lucas, Duty Station Manager at Guildford said: “Guildford station has already seen a number of improvements this year with extra car parking spaces, anti-slip treads on the stairs and now more cycle storage. The improvements we are making show our commitment to improving our stations for the benefit of both our staff and our customers.”

Dave Holladay of the Cycle Touring Club, the UK's National Cyclists' Association, said: “The response of South West Trains in delivering extra capacity shows that they are one of the few operators who monitor and manage cycle parking, as a serious choice that many customers have made to enjoy time savings and convenience in their daily commute. With our new national office in Stoughton just 12 minutes away by bike, several staff are using the cycle parking to keep a bike at Guildford and avoid cycle carriage restrictions on the morning and evening trains. The regular delays experienced by motorists getting into Guildford means that we are noticing a steady increase in people cycling in to catch trains each morning, as our own staff head out to work.”

This latest installation brings the number of double-decker racks at the station to six with the station now capable of accommodating well over 100 bicycles.
