Description

This is the worlds largest underground bicycle parking garage, which is built below the Utrecht train station in the Netherlands, it's a three-storey bicycle parking lot, which can store 12,656 bikes.

The project forms part of a wider redevelopment of the area surrounding the city's railway station, to enable cyclists to ride from the street level to the bike store, from which they can quickly access the station. It is hoped to encourage locals to commute using bikes and public transport instead of cars, and in turn ease congestion in Utrecht and make it a more sustainable city.

There are row after row of bikes stacked 2 racks high, with 1000s of bikes in the racks. Most of the bicycle parking spaces are standard type bike racks, but there are even special bays for large cargo bikes.

Alongside the storage, the structure incorporates a repair service and bicycle hire. It also relies on a digital system to guide cyclists to a parking spot that provides the quickest access to the platforms.

At the centre of each storey, there are three stairwells that allow commuters to quickly access the main terminal building, train platforms and public square. Enclosed by glass walls and skylights, these staircases also double as a lightwells, to bring natural light into the depths of the building.

Ultimately, when traveling from point A to point B, people will take whatever method of transport that gets them there quickly and efficiently as possible. But due to good planning in Dutch cities, the choice most people make, is to ride a bicycle.

Thanks for watching.
