Before the end of this week hangars are on course to be unveiled in:

• Ravenswood Road, Balham
• Sellincourt Road, Tooting
• Fernside Road, Balham

Next week, these streets will be added to the list:

• Marney Road, Battersea
• Ruvigny Gardens, Putney
• Avarn Road, Tooting
• Deodar Road, Putney
• Joubert Street, Battersea
• Kelmscott Street, Battersea

Each hangar can safely and securely store up to six bikes and are accessed by people who have signed up to the scheme, which is being run in partnership with Cyclehoop, paid a membership fee and been given a key.

Wandsworth is already home to nearly 40 bike hangars on local estates, while providing safe and secure bike storage for residents is a standard planning condition for all new housing developments.

Transport spokesman Cllr John Locker said: “This is good news for bike owning residents in these streets who don’t have gardens or enough room inside their homes to securely store their bikes.

“Making it easier for local people to switch to two-wheeled transport is a key element of our commitment to tackle climate change which will be at the heart of all town hall policies between now and 2030.”
