Wandsworth Council to ban e-bikes being abandoned on pavements

Riders will be banned from abandoning e-bikes on busy town centre pavements in a south London borough under a new scheme.

Wandsworth Council will bring the ban into force once it has finished installing 111 parking bays for e-bikes across the borough, including Clapham Junction, Tooting Broadway, Tooting Bec, Wandsworth Town, Balham and Putney town centres.

The scheme aims to deal with issues created from when rental e-bikes are left parked on pavements, blocking routes for pedestrians.

Installation of the parking bays began on Thursday and the council expects to complete the works in about four weeks.
