New Cycle Hub at Lewes station

Southern Rail have been successful in gaining funds to create a lockable cycle storage facility to hold 200 bikes. This should be in place by March 2014.  They will be putting the plans to the district council for planning approval shortly.

An additional opportunity has arrived on the back of this. There is space under the arches next to where the storage will be for a business or community group to run cycle hire or repair service. There could also be financial support for a bike recycling project, for example with offenders or as job creation or training. Contact Lisa Simmonds at ESCC Principal Transport Policy Officer 01273 336515 to talk through any ideas. Email her on lisa.simmonds@eastsussex.gov.uk

 

A proposal will be unveiled soon on a safe cycle route through Lewes without using the High Street.
