Video: World's biggest cycle parking facility coming to the Netherlands - 12,500 spaces
How do you fit that many bikes into one location? This video of planned addition to Utrecht Centraal railway station gives the answer.
Utrecht Centraal railway station in the Netherlands is to get the world's largest cycle parking facility, with space for 12,500 bicycles.
Final plans for the scheme for the eastern entrance to the station have now been approved, with the facility opening in two phases - the first in 2016, with final completion two years later.
It will sit beneath a new square, closed to motorised traffic and lined with shops and cafes, and comprises three levels of cycle parking. A video has been released showing a CGI simulation, including how cyclists will enter and exit the new installation.
