Chelmsford Smart Hangar Scheme (CSHS) was launched earlier this month to help cyclists to safely store their bikes in Chelmsford's city centre. Currently, there are three 'bike hangars' that can hold up to six bikes. They are located in:
Can Bridge Way (by Meadows Surface car park)
Market Road (by the public toilets)
Market Square (on the corner of Cornhill and Bellmead)
The bike hangars cost £1 per hour or £3 for a full day.
How does it work?
Cycling encourages a healthier lifestyle, is good for the environment and is a sustainable form of transport.
In 2020, the Lib Dem-led Council created the Chelmsford Cycling Charter to encourage residents and local businesses to support everyday cycling. There are over 30 miles of family friendly cycling routes in Chelmsford, and you can find the route maps at the Explore Chelmsford site.
Chelmsford has 960 bicycle stands, of which 450 are spaces at the station.
"This new scheme provides a secure, accessible and dry storage for bicycles. I hope the new hangars will encourage more residents to cycle to the city centre, thus reducing pollution and traffic congestion - making Chelmsford greener and healthier."
Councillor Mike Mackrory, Cabinet Member for Sustainable Development
