HUNDREDS of commuters racking their brains about where to find a parking spot for their bikes in central London have had their worries solved-by railway bosses.
New 'double deck' parking racks have been put in at Liverpool Street Station (pictured) by Network Rail which provides 233 cycle spaces for City workers, with CCTV cameras thrown in for security.
The scheme paid for by Transport for London doubles the number of cycle spaces at Liverpool Street.
The Mayor's transport advisor Kulveer Ranger said: "Parking securely plays a major role in helping commuters decide whether to take to two wheels. We have to make sure Londoners can park their bikes where and when they want."
