With 124 spaces the new Barclays Cycle Hire docking station at Waterloo is set to become London’s biggest docking point yet.
Work started on 1st November and the new docking point near Waterloo station's main entrance is expected to be operational from mid December.
It is the largest of 50 additional docking points that are being installed across Central London between now and spring 2011.
Kulveer Ranger, the Mayor of London’s Transport Advisor, said ‘Demand for bikes in the Waterloo area has been particularly high and the new super docking station is the first of a series that we are putting in to help our ever increasing membership get around town.’
Over 1.3 million journeys have already been made on Barclays hire bikes and over 100,000 Londoners are signed up to the scheme.
