More than one hundred bicycle hangars have now been installed across the city.

Brighton and Hove City Council said the 110 hangars provide enough parking for 650 bikes near homes and when the job is complete, there will be 150 with enough room for 900 bicycles.

Maintaining the metal units is being brought in house with the council using finances directly from the storage fees to keep them looking good.

Councillor Trevor Muten, chairman of the transport and sustainability committee, said: “We know there’s a huge demand for cycle parking in the city, especially for those residents who don’t have secure outdoor spaces to store their bikes.

“We’re providing them with more cycle hangars and new stands for people to park their bikes.

“Work will begin soon on cycle and pedestrian improvements to the A23 and we’re working very hard on a better plan for a higher standard bi-directional cycle lane along Hove seafront that’s better for pedestrians, access and all who travel along this route.

“All of which shows our commitment to improving cycling infrastructure and active travel across Brighton and Hove.”

The council has also been installing new public cycle stands across the city, with more than 50 already in place across 18 locations.
