The project to transform the station forecourt area at Ashford International Station to the SE Cycle Hub is now complete.
As main contractor to South Eastern Trains we have radically changed the station forecourt area using a decking system to create two levels of cycle parking.
Our task started with the removal of the old compound and setting the new concrete foundations. This involved not only liaising with Network Rail but also HS1 (High Speed 1) and working around access and delivery restrictions due to the busy nature of the station. All deliveries and even the concrete for the foundations had to be pumped from the top car park.
One of the main features of this project is the raised deck area which allows for a free public access cycle parking area to be created using two tier cycle racks. The deck area has been created as a cantilever due to the fact that no foundations are allowed close to the HS1 land boundaries.
The space below this new raised deck area is a secure compound with access control, lighting and CCTV.
This has been one of our largest projects to date and includes full design and build and we are delighted with the end results.

New contract for creating a cycle hub at Nottingham Station

Cycle hubs are becoming increasingly popular at rail stations and Lockit-safe have been responsible for the cycle parking within some high profile rail cycle hub projects such as Sheffield Station and Leicester Station
We are delighted that in November we will be starting work on another such project at Nottingham Station for East Midland Trains via their main contractor Bowmer & Kirkland. The cycle hub will be created in an existing building using two tier cycle racks which make the best of the available space.
We will be posting further pictures and information once the project has been completed.

Transport for Manchester Contract well underway

We are now well underway with a number of projects for Transport for Manchester upgrading and installing cycle parking solutions into schools and colleges across the Manchester area.

One of the largest of these is for Kingsaway School which includes cycle lockers (both single and double); extensive groundworks including drainage, removal of trees and leveleing of the ground and a large bespoke canopy.

We will keep you updated with the progress of these exciting projects in our case study section.

Installation of Ashford International station forecourt

Ashford International station is an extremely busy commuter and Eurostar station and we were delighted when we were appointed as main contractor to a project to transform the station forecourt.

The project uses a decking system to provide two levels of cycle parking and so maximise the space.

We are currently at installation stage but here is the drawing of what the final structure will look like. We will post more pictures as we have them.

Two tier

Cycle shelters, cycle compounds, lockers, canopies and walkways.

Cycle Shelters
Our range of cycle shelters provide huge choice of designs, finishes and options. Their modular design means they can accommodate any number of cycles and can also be added to at a future date. Our new two tier racks are ideal for areas where space is a premium.
Canopies can be used to enhance the architectural look of a building with door canopies, or with extended canopies can connect buildings and provide additional sheltered outdoor space.
Cycle Compounds
Our lockable cycle compounds provide additional security and come in a range of designs and finishes. We can design bespoke solutions and provide a variety of access control systems, lighting and CCTV.
As sites expand, buildings often become detached from each other which cause problems in bad weather for people having to move between buildings. The solution is to link these buildings by way of covered walkways.
Cycle Locker
Cycle lockers provide excellent weather protection and high security and are often regarded as the ultimate in secure cycle storage. We can provide vertical, horizontal, single, double and Transec approved cycle lockers.
Scooter Racks
Scooters are a popular choice for younger children but storing these scooters, can cause problems for schools. Our dedicated scooter racks are freestanding or can be integrated into cycle shelters.
