Changes to cycle parking Bristol Temple Meads this summer

Temple Meads Train Station cycle storage

Due to refurbishment work and security measures, all bike storage on the station platforms needs to be removed on Sunday 6 September.

Temporary new cycle storage is being built to take its place and all cycle parking on Station Approach will remain.

Owners of bikes left on the station to collect them no later than Saturday 5 September.

After which date they will be moved to a secure location elsewhere and available to collect for a limited period.

Network Rail are required to remove all cycle storage from the platforms:

  • to make room for scaffolding being installed for our roof renovations this Autumn
  • to ensure passengers can safely move around the station while the roof renovations are taking place
Bike storage will be removed from the station platforms permanently

Network Rail are asking anyone with a bike on the platform to collect it before that date.

Network Rail will move any left behind to a secure location elsewhere.

If your bike is among those moved, please speak to a member of station staff before 6 November. They will help get you reunited.

After 6 November any unclaimed bikes will be given to charity.

Where can you park your bike?

All existing cycle parking on Station Approach will remain.

A new temporary cycle storage facility on Friary at Temple Quay will be built, just to the right of the ramped exit from the long stay car park.

This facility will hold more than 450 bikes. It will be covered, lit and protected by CCTV.

It will remain in place for the duration of the roof refurbishment project (until 2023) when the permanent location will be agreed.
