[Image taken 14.4.21] Sheffields (racks) at Monks Cross, (Huntington), York. The aisle (gap between the racks) is just 187cm wide. There was no room for me to be able to reverse out without lifting my cycle. For a second view of this site … [more]

The lifts are too short for a bike (about 62" or less than 1.60 m). They also force users wheeling their luggage, trolley or bike in to exit backwards. These lifts should be about 1/3 deeper, with an exit on the opposite end, like most … [more]

Squeezing into the lift - three bikes can just fit into the lift - if you weren't friends before, you soon will be.

New lifts for the Audley End station footbridge. The shape of the lift seemed to be square. The width of the entrance door is 1.1 metres and I'd estimate the dimensions inside are 1.6 metres square with a 12 cm door recess. (These figures … [more]
