Motorbike anchors installed in car parks

As Coronavirus restrictions lift further and people are spending more time outdoors, the town council wants to draw motorcyclists’ attention to the motorcycle ground anchors installed both at Bank Street car park in Highbridge & Pier Street car park in Burnham. The four heavy-duty retractable anchors are installed in dedicated parking bays for use by motorcyclists to secure their machines and help prevent thefts.

With the permission of Sedgemoor District Council, which owns the car parks, Burnham & Highbridge Town Council installed the security devices following a request by local resident and motorbike journalist, Oli Hulme, who was concerned by the spate of bike thefts locally.

A spokeswoman for the council said, “Oli had alerted us to available funding from the Avon & Somerset Police Community Trust, and with a top-up contribution from the town council, the motorbike anchors were installed this year.

Knowing the area, especially Burnham, is a popular destination for bikers, the town council hopes to promote a more secure environment that helps give peace of mind.”
