Waterford City looking to provide bicycle parking for residents without backyard access

Waterford City and County Council are looking for city residents in terraces or apartments without easy access to sheds to store bicycles who want to try a Bike Bunker, an on-street bicycle locker.

A number of Bike Bunkers have been installed in the Dublin City Council area before the programme stalled due to internal issues, and Fingal County Council have also installed a small number of the units. The lockers are highly popular in London, where there are waiting lists for them, and are also used in some Dutch cities.

“Would you like to own a bike but have nowhere to store it? We are looking for Waterford City residents with no backyard access (terrace house or apartment) to try a Bike Bunker for free. All we want is feedback on how it worked for you,” the council said.

The council added: “The Bike Bunker is made by Cyclehoop (cyclhoop.com) and they installed across Dublin City Centre, as well as in many cities across Europe. They have a solid, highly secure accredited lock mechanism, which is angle grinder resistant.”
