Thanks for filling in a Library comments card the last weekend – my apologies for the delay in replying to you.
Your suggestion is very helpful and the illustration is particularly useful! The bike racks are managed by the University’s Estates team so I have passed your comments onto my colleagues in that department.
There have been recent discussions between Library and Estates staff (including the Environment team) about trying to improve the current arrangements for bike racks outside the Library. As you have rightly observed, space is limited and I know that Estates have recently been making a concerted effort to clear away bikes that appear to be abandoned.
I’m not sure whether or not the removal of the wall will be possible but I will certainly ask.
