Broxap Ltd was chosen as preferred supplier for the Cycle Hub® facilities and has been engaged in the Design and Build Programme for a number of other locations. Based on a design concept by the client’s architect and utilising Broxap’s Design and Build expertise, this concerned major updates to the provision of ‘up to the minute’ secure cycle parking provision in the Greater Manchester area on behalf of Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM).

The initial two projects now complete concerned the installation of a secure Cycle Hub® to the Bury Interchange and Ashton-under-Lyne with provision for in excess of 45 cycles parked and complete with integral helmet lockers in order to cater for short distance commuters.

The units incorporates a duo pitched polycarbonate roof and is clad entirely by glass panelling complete with graphic images of cycle parking, access is achieved via an automated swipe card system.

Security is by way of CCTV which is monitored 24/7 by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) through their network.

This design brief was to provide secure affordable cycle parking and is the initial two projects of a pilot scheme of which several sites are planned.
