New cycle facilities at Seaford Rail Station

Seaford train station has been given new multi-tier cycle parking, a maintenance stand equipped with tools and a floor-standing pump.

Parking for 20 bikes has been provided using Cyclepod’s Easylift+ system. Instructions how to access the top layer are posted on a blue sign just above eye level, attached to a nearby roof support (shown below).

There’s a handy floor pump, which should make tyre inflation a doddle. Remember to check the walls of your tyres to find the recommended pressure.

A selection of tools has also been provided, including hex keys, spanners and screwdrivers. These are all secured by a strong steel wire to prevent theft.

    I think there actually only 20 spaces (8+12). I’ve found the lower rack not very user friendly, I keep banging my head on the upper rack when locking my bike!

    Always good to see some investment at Seaford station, however not sure that the number of cycle spaces has increased as a result which is a bit disappointing.

    Just wondered if other bike commuters were aware that these new parking facilities were going to replace the old racks as there didn’t seem to be any warning beforehand. As a result I’ve lost a rather expensive bike lock that I kept at the station.

    Thanks for spotting that Iain, and thanks for the prompt about this in the first place.
    I’ve updated the above accordingly.

    I think its about the same number of spaces as before. I only noticed information about it on the 30th, stating that work was happening on the 30th/31st! I didn’t use the station for a few days before that, so don’t know if there was anything up earlier.

    Don’t want to discourage use of this facility but have been reliably informed that a bike was stolen from these racks yesterday, apparently there’s a couple of blind spots that the cctv camera doesn’t pickup!

    If you can send us full details we can chase this up the Community Rail Partnership.
