Public bike repair and pumping stations needed with new cycle lanes – Cheevers

The rollout of more cycle lanes around the city requires the introduction of more infrastructure for easy bike maintenance a city councillor has said.

Cllr Alan Cheevers said that the city council needs to provide more Bike Repair and Pump Stations around the city, to go along with the introduction of more cycle lanes.

This would make a “winning combination” Alan Cheevers said, in that it would provide “bike owners the opportunity to repair bikes and pump tyres in one convenience place”.

Galway City Council is planning a number of high profile public infrastructure projects meant to encourage sustainable transport such as cycling.

These include prominent Bus Connect routes on the Dublin Road and Cross-City Link, which would include new cycle lanes, pedestrian access, and priority for public transport.

“The repair station is one unit made from highly durable steel and can accommodate all bikes,” said Cllr Cheevers.

“I am calling on Galway City Council to give this serious consideration as other local authorities around the country have implemented this on their cycling networks.”
