Residents’ today got a sneak peak of new bike stands on Effra road in Brixton.
The feature on Windrush Square spells out the word Brixton. The stands cost £5,500, as funded by TfL allocation for public realm and cycling improvements.
Cllr Imogen Walker said: “The new Brixton sign welcomes people to the area and provides much needed extra bike parking in Windrush Square. The materials chosen match those used for the hugely successful revamp of the square.”
As this picture by Jay Rayner shows, the stands made a brief appearance today, but they have now been removed.
After 12 months of planning and consultations, the Brixton stands are expected to return for good shortly.
