Lockswap scheme is back for one last time in 2022

1:59 pm, Tuesday, 17th May 2022 - 10 months ago


North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, EQUANS, are pleased to announce that the Lockswap scheme is back again until the end of June.

More than 120 people got involved in the March scheme with each person going home with a brand-new Kryptonite Sold Secure Gold Standard U-lock with 4’ cable for just £10 when swapping their old bike lock. This lock typically retails at over £50.

This project is one of the schemes being delivered by the council and EQUANS, supported by the Department for Transport’s Capability Fund, helping local people get safely out on their bikes to feel fitter, improve their wellbeing and reduce their carbon footprint.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “We’re happy to have helped many people keep their bikes safe so far and we hope to help more in the future. We love to support residents in joining the sustainable transport revolution where we can.”

Anthony Snell, senior transport officer at EQUANS, added: “The event in March had a fantastic turnout with more than 120 people getting involved and taking this opportunity. We now only have a limited number of locks left this year, so grab yours now and get back on your bikes this summer.”

Get yourself a new lock today and visit to book a ticket. You will need to take this ticket (either printed out or on a smartphone) to the Cycle Hub in Grimsby, along with your old lock and £10. Your old lock will then be swapped for the new U-lock.
