Finance staff piloting the new Park & Cycle scheme

Staff will be aware of the travel delays that will be caused by imminent roadworks at the bridge crossing of the River Eden, Guardbridge. The University understands that the works will be for two weeks from Saturday 2nd August 2014 to Monday 18th August 2014. During this two week period, a temporary park and cycle facility will be established at the University’s Guardbridge site, Monday to Friday of each week. The system will work as follows:

Car Parking

Staff can park their cars in the open, unfenced car park owned by the University, located on Main Street, just past the Mill Clock on the right hand side as you come from Leuchars. The car park is directly adjacent to the National Cycle Path that leads to St Andrews. The cycle path will not be affected by the roadworks as it crosses the River Eden using the old road bridge and the Old St Andrews Road. The cycle journey takes between 20 and 30 minutes – ish! The attached plan shows the location of the car park, the cycle route and the cycle parking.

Staff can of course take their bikes home with them if their cars are equipped for easy transport of bikes.

Cycle Parking

Staff can make use of two cycle racks that have been provided in the ‘lean-to’ covered shed which is located through the main entrance of the main Guardbridge site just beyond the site office portakabin. For operational reasons, cycle parking will be strictly available between 8am and 6pm during the two weeks of the road works. Before and after these times, the main site gates are closed. So staff will only be able to retrieve and deposit bikes between 8am and 6pm sharp. Cycles should be securely locked by their owner.
