The Concourse Shopping Centre in Skelmersdale has installed new cycle racks as it introduces a ban of bicycles in the centre.
A total of 20 bicycle parking spaces are now available at the front of the centre, close to the taxi rank; on the western side, by the NYE Bevan Pool; and at the Whelmar Bridge entrance.
The new provision has been installed after shoppers raised concerns with the management of the centre, which is owned and managed by London & Cambridge Properties, regarding cyclists riding their bikes in the centre.
The introduction of the bicycle parking provision means that cyclists will no longer be allowed to take their bicycles into the centre
Gary Mitchell, manager of The Concourse, said: “We’ve listened to shoppers’ concerns about cyclists riding their bikes in the centre and so we have invested in parking provision specifically for bikes. All that cyclists need is their own lock.”
