I posted a while ago about the removal of the bicycle parking outside the town centre Safeway in Durham. This afternoon I got a reply, long after I'd given up expecting one: Dear Mr. Nutter, I'm sorry for the delay in responding to your enquiry. Both cycle racks near to the Millburngate Centre are to be re-installed following the environmental improvement works in North Road. Our Northern Area Office tell me that they are waiting for some benches to be installed first, as these are heavy and will require some mechanical equipment to move them into place. The cycle racks may get in the way of this, and will therefore be put in afterwards. I have noticed several bikes tied to railings recently, and agree that the parking facilities need to be put back into place as soon as possible. I hope this answers your enquiry. Yours sincerely, Ben Dellow Better late than never I suppose Regards, -david, happy that he'll no longer have to walk any distance with panniers full of orange juice ObBikeRelated: Bit brisk this morning, wot? My fingertips were an interesting shade of blue when I got to work.
