TfL Ref: FOI-2415-2021
Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 24th February 2021 asking for information about TfL-owned Sheffield stands.
Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.
Specifically you asked:
“Please advise the number of standard Sheffield stands owned by Transport for London at the current time?
Please also advise the number of additional Sheffield stands that Transport of London announced in 2019 that they will install in 2020/21 and 2021/22?”.
TfL does not maintain a record of the number of Sheffield stands that we own and so we are unable to answer your first question. In answer to your second question, in 2019/20 we provided funding to all London boroughs to install 7,800 cycle parking spaces, as announced here:
In 2020/21 we have installed 1,100 spaces on the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN) and 400 spaces at London Underground stations, and provided grants to 13 London boroughs to install up to 2,000 additional spaces on their networks by the end of March 2021. The Press Release published here provides more information:
We cannot yet say how many more cycle parking space will be provided in 2021/22 as it is dependent on the level of funding we will receive.
Please note the figures above relate to the number of spaces (there are 2 spaces per Sheffield stand). It also includes cycle parking spaces provided in cycle hangars or via two-tier racks (different types of infrastructure) so they are not all Sheffield stands.
More general information about cycle parking on the TfL network can be found on our website here:
If you are considering submitting a further FOI request please think carefully about whether the request is essential at this current time, as answering FOI requests will require the use of limited resources and the attention of staff who could be supporting other essential activity. Where requests are made, please note that our response time may be impacted by the current situation.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.
