Bicycles abandoned in Station Square will be given to charity
Abandoned bicycles will be removed from Station Square, making space for temporary cycle parking and clearing the way for for pedestrians.
We are pleased to announce that together with the support of Cambridge City Council, we have launched a service to remove abandoned bikes in CB1’s Station Square.
The service has been developed to tackle the growing problem of abandoned bikes in Station Square. Abandoned bikes take up valuable temporary cycle parking spaces and can present an obstacle to pedestrians and other cyclists, as well as detracting from the visual appearance of the area in front of One the Square.
Here's how we identify the ababdoned bikes: bicycles that appear abandoned in Station Square, will be tagged using a warning tag, which asks the person responsible for the bike to call the CB1 Estate Office urgently on 07930 734836, to report it as claimed. Failure to do so may result in this bicycle being removed. For each day a bike remains uncollected, a new tag will be added to the bike, until, after the bike has attracted seven tags, it will be removed.
All removed bikes will be held for two weeks, and if unclaimed after that period, will be donated to a local charity for recycling.
CB1 Estate Management is asking for cyclists visiting Station Square and the wider CB1 estate to park their bikes responsibly in the safe and appropriate places provided across CB1, including the 3000-space, free-to-use CyclePoint building, located in the IBIS building to the north of the Station entrance.
