You might remember the press release we issued on 9th June 2000

Powered Two Wheelers (PTWs) and to cover all transport issues, including safety, theft, parking, use of bus lanes, road surfaces, and how a bike can be an economical and practical alternative to a car. Below, you will find a press release showing that things are moving...

50 Secure Motorcycle Parking Bays for Sandwell

As a direct result of the ground-breaking Sandwell Strategy for
Motorcycles bikers in the area are set to benefit from the installation of 50 secure motorcycle parking bays in West Bromwich town centre.

Two of the main objectives of the Strategy were to reduce motorcycle crime in Sandwell and to provide powered two-wheeler riders with an adequate supply of safe and secure parking.

17 new anchor points are currently being installed, providing an additional 38 secure motorcycle parking bays which compliment the existing 12 spaces in the borough.

These new anchor points are located next to the disabled parking areas thereby offering riders prime access to local facilities. All will be free of charge and spread across the 7 car parks in West Bromwich.

Sandwell Motorcycle Forum were consulted about the number and location of the devices and this is a prime example of the Strategy being positively implemented. It is intended to sell advertising space on the anchor points and to use the money raised for 'in-situ' signs, ''secure motorcycle parking'', and to produce location maps and leaflets.
