Status Update

We now have 3 docking stations at Bermondsey Station, Rotherhithe Roundabout and Canada Water Station.  We estimate we need 35 stations to cover Bermondsey and Rotherhithe, so although any progress is welcome, there is still a long way to go

A breath of fresh air from the Leader of the opposition at Southwark Council

Councillor Anood Al-Samerai,  Leader, Southwark Liberal Democrat Council Group kindly provided this statement:

“Southwark Liberal Democrats strongly support extending the bike hire scheme to Bermondsey and Rotherhithe and have been calling on the council to make this happen for years. TfL will fund the ongoing maintenance costs and so the council only has to put up the initial capital, which it could secure from developers who are adding to the population but not our infrastructure. Lambeth and Tower Hamlets Councils have managed, Southwark must now follow their lead. Liberal Democrats are doing all we can to make sure that the bike hire scheme is listed on local community infrastructure project lists and will continue to lobby the Council’s Cabinet to put their money where their mouth is.”
