Individual bicycle lockers planned for Skerries train station
26 March 2014
Brendan Ryan, Labour Party TD for Dublin Fingal, has welcomed the news he has received from the CEO of Irish Rail that individual bicycle lockers will be installed in Skerries train station.
Ryan says “Over the last couple of years there have been numerous incidents of bicycle theft at Skerries train station. The existing CCTV has not worked as a deterrent and bicycles of high monetary value have been stolen on a regular basis.
Ryan stated “I have been lobbying Irish Rail for the past year to increase security measures. Irish Rail have been working closely with local Gardai in relation to Skerries train station and they have now opened negotiations to install new individual security lockers. These lockers will definitely help commuters keep their bicycle safe.”
Ryan concluded “The model of providing individual bicycle lockers has been implemented in several other train stations throughout Ireland and has worked very successfully for cyclists and hopefully it will be the same case for Skerries train station.”
