TFL has announced plans for a 'Dutch-style' cycling Superhub to be implemented in 2018.

TfL is working with Network Rail and the Department for Transport to deliver around 5,000 more cycle parking spaces as part of the new facility at Waterloo station. This will allow more commuters to switch to bikes for journeys between the office and the train, relieving pressure on the tube and bus networks in central London. It will also connect with new and improved cycle routes in the area.

The new development from TFL comes with the news that as part of Mayor Boris Johnson's commitment to creating 80,000 new cycling spaces, two new free cycle parking hubs are to be created at Houndslow West and North Greenwich stations. The two new hubs will hold 190 and 350 spaces respectively and will be open by the end of March. 

The two new hubs will be able to cater for all types of bikes, including handcycles and cargo bikes, and will have bike maintenance tools as well as lighting and CCTV.

A key part of the Mayor’s Vision for Cycling is to increase the number of cycling trips in outer London, targeting short car journeys and travel to rail stations that could be taken by bike. Safe and secure cycle parking is helping to achieve this, and TfL is on track to deliver 80,000 new spaces by the end of this year, on top of the 80,000 installed between 2008 and 2012.
