Cycle Parking on Friary for Temple Meads is being relocated.

From Network Rail: When it was constructed a couple of years ago, we advised the current location on Friary was only a temporary arrangement, as the land was on loan to us to enable the station’s roof renovations to get underway. That contract is now up and the landowner needs the site back for development.

Ultimately, the majority of the station’s bicycle parking will be located at the new Southern Gateway entrance, accessed via Bath Road, which is due to be built as part of the Temple Quarter programme. In the interim, we unfortunately need to make another temporary move for the bike racks.

Phase 1 (w/c 29 January – w/c 19 February) – Preparing for closure of racks E to J and Phase 2 Preparing for closure of racks A to D w/c 18 March tbc.
