September saw the installation by Southern of a new 40-space double-tier
bicycle parking facility at the south side of Brighton railway station.
Following uproar from cyclists and City Councillors when Southern removed the previous undercover parking and broke their franchise commitment in doing so, Southern have worked with Brighton and Hove City Council on plans for new facilities including the installation of a two-tier rack at the front of the station and over a hundred extra cycle parking spaces at the rear, all of which is now complete.
The new rack at the front is located behind the taxi rank. It is fenced and monitored 24 hours a day by Southern’s CCTV Control Centre.
