Description

RBK are seeking a contractor to install and maintain folding bike hire stations at 3 new locations across the borough (see specification).
• Kingston Town Centre,
• Kingston Station and
• New Malden Station.
Once contract is awarded further details on specific locations will be notified by RBK.

There should be a minimum of 12 folding bikes at each location. RBK may stagger the installations. RBK reserve the right to change the proposed locations from those stated above or to not install hire stations if TfL funding is withdrawn or project spending priorities change.

1.8 Hire stations and bikes to be branded with Council’s mini-Holland brand ‘Go Cycle’.

All bikes and bike station elements are to be delivered to each site by the successful contractor and installed in line with Council health and safety procedures with all necessary permits from the Council. The contractor will be expected to provide and carry out the installation of quality folding bikes and secure facilities to hire them from. The facilities will need to be accessible 24/7 but secure against theft and vandalism.

The whole cycle hire scheme must be self-sustaining.
