Loyalist College builds and donates bike corrals to Town of Lincoln

Lincoln, ON – (April 19, 2018) – Loyalist College’s Welding and Fabrication students built two large bike corrals and have donated them to the Town of Lincoln. The Town would like to thank the Welding Techniques, Fabrication Technician Program for their contribution to the Town’s cycling infrastructure, with a special thank you to John Grieve, Professor Coordinator of the program.

With Spring weather on the horizon, these two corrals will be installed and located at Charles Daley Park and Beamsville Lions Park. Both parks are central on cycling routes, as well as offer park amenities and a destination for residents and tourists to cycle to.

The Town developed an Active Transportation Committee this term in an effort to improve active mobility across the Town. This includes pedestrian, cycling, and public transit initiatives. The Committee is community driven with members from the community, chaired by Councillors, and staff representatives.

Quotes:

”We are grateful for these new bike corrals,” stated Active Transportation Chair Councillor Tony Brunet. “Any new infrastructure to support active transportation is a welcomed addition”.

“Thank you to Loyalist College’s Welding and Fabrication students,” stated CAO Michael Kirkopoulos. “It is wonderful to see this collaboration between a college and municipality. Drawing on student expertise is mutually beneficial.”
