People cycling into King’s Lynn town centre can now access secure bike storage thanks to six new lockable spaces at Baker Lane.

The storage forms part of the pilot cycle hub at Baker Lane which currently offers space for 40 cycles, in addition to the new secured and covered storage.

The pilot cycle hub has been made possible through Community Renewal Funding from Norfolk County Council and will be a forerunner for a permanent travel hub that is being developed as part of the Town Deal programme of investment in King’s Lynn.

The proposed permanent travel hub, which is currently at design stage, will not only provide storage for cycles, it will also offer secure lockers and e-bike charging.

Councillor Michael de Whalley, Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Biodiversity said:

“We’re taking action to make it easier for people to travel around town on cycle and on foot, and we know from previous consultation that secure bike storage is something that people have said they would like to see.

“It’s great to see these lockable spaces now installed and available for use, offering people an easy way to store their bike should they wish to cycle into town.

“We have a coordinated strategy to promote active and clean travel across West Norfolk and beyond. This is just one aspect of how we are supporting people to choose healthier and environmentally-friendly options to get around.”

In addition to the Baker Lane active travel hub, another hub is also set to be developed at the Nar Ouse Enterprise Zone offering facilities including electric car charging points, secure cycle parking, e-cycle/scooter charging points, and lockers.

Other work that is being carried out to make it easier for people to choose active ways to travel in the town incudes work with employers to create active travel plans, improving walking and cycling routes, and a new community cycle hub at Lynnsport.
