AMSTERDAM – In the central area in front of Amsterdam Central Station, hard work is being done on the underground bicycle shed Stationsplein.
Curious what it will look like? There is now a film of the stabling based on the 3D model.
The film gives an impression of how cyclists from all corners of Amsterdam can park their bicycles there at the end of next year.
The new Stationsplein bicycle shed will soon be able to accommodate 7,000 bicycles. The entrance for cyclists will be at Martelaarsgracht opposite the Art Hotel.
Travelers can go down by hand on a roller conveyor to store their bicycles. Then through a tunnel, dry and without a detour, to arrive directly in the metro or station concourse.
The construction of the underground bicycle shed started in the summer of 2018.
The floor and walls of the shed have already been poured. Work is now underway on the roof. Next spring the water will return above the storage facility. That will be deep enough for the tour boats.
The facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
