They are designed for use by commuters and visitors to shops and nearby amenities, enabling people to park their bikes before boarding trains.

Secured with CCTV, safe parking for 50 bikes and three accessible cycles can be accessed 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week by using an access card. Facilities include a bike pump and repair stand so that cyclists can fix their machines on the go.

Enfield Council's deputy leader, Daniel Anderson, said: "We'd like to see as many people as possible who visit our town centres or use local tube or rail services to leave their cars at home and consider active travel wherever possible and practicable.

"By providing secure parking for cycles these hubs will help encourage more people to do just that."
