Boris Bikes coming to SW8, SW9 and SW4

Transport for London’s ‘Boris Bikes’ cycle hire scheme is coming deeper into Lambeth – in December and January planning applications were submitted to Lambeth Council for new docking stations mainly located along Wandsworth Road and in the Stockwell area (see below for list of locations.)

Lambeth will consider these applications over the next few weeks and once planning permission has been agreed work will start on installing the new cycle facilities. It is understood that more planning applications for docking stations will be forthcoming.

Barclays Cycle Hire sign in Kennington on new locations will complement the existing Barclays cycle hire locations which are centred around the North of the borough in the Vauxhall, Kennington, Southbank and Waterloo areas
