Cycle hub at Chester Northgate scheme

22 August 2022

Chester’s Northgate scheme is set to open in late autumn, the much-anticipated scheme is the biggest development in Chester for decades. Chester Northgate is not a new shopping centre; it is a development of open streets, a new central Exchange Square and Coachworks Arcade that will integrate seamlessly with the surrounding parts of the city centre; including a new: indoor market hall, six-screen Picturehouse cinema, cafés, bars and restaurants, multi-storey parking and office suites.

Northgate will also provide parking for 100 cycles – 50 indoor and 50 outdoor, made up of both short and longer stay cycle parking options. The New Market Parking will include a 50-space cycle hub on the ground floor – the city centre’s first dedicated indoor cycle park. Work is underway to fit-out the secure cycle hub which will include a repair station and e-bike charging facilities, plus scooter parking places. This facility will also be in addition to the cycle lockers that were situated on Princess Street, these were relocated to the Frodsham Street car park when construction on Northgate commenced in summer 2020.

The 50 outdoor cycle spaces will be incorporated into the central Exchange Square, along Princess Street and Hunter Street. These will be mainly hoop type stands and with ten push-in type stands with side brackets incorporated into the square’s stone landscaping.

We are grateful to the Chester Cycling Campaign for their support in designing the cycle hub and advice on the types of cycle parking stands used around the scheme.
