Bin Stores

Whilst the cycle lanes on Cheltenham Road and Gloucester Road are useful places to park a car or two, I've recently noticed an increase in cycle parking provision along this route. As usual, those that "Plan" (on our behalf) have over-provided in some areas, and under provided in others - I doubt many council employees go to gigs at The Croft...

However, the plus side of this new provision is that the existing bin stores on the Gloucester Road are under less pressure from cyclists wanting to park their machines. On a bad day these bins used to be virtually forced into the road by parked cycles. Now, however, they retain their rightful places - separated from each other by Sheffield stands, and only marginally encroached-on by inconsiderate bicycle users.
