New Ground-Breaking Cycle Hub in Stockholm!
On the 9th July the first cycle hub opened its doors in Stockholm - the capital of Sweden, providing a revolutionary facility for commuters and tourists to securely park their bikes. The state-of-the-art, three floor facility, uses the FalcoLevel two-tier cycle parking rack and Triangle cycle stands to provide 390 free of charge cycle spaces.
The Swedish government wants to promote the use of cycling and public transport to ease congestion and reduce its carbon footprint. Therefore this new cycle parking infrastructure makes cycling in Stockholm an attractive and easy way to travel around the city and become part of the city’s everyday life. Stockholm’s Transport Chief - Ula Hamilton explains ‘We would like more people to start cycling around the city and to increase use of public transport, therefore we have created Stockholm’s first cycle hub which is ideally situated next to train and bus services’.
The new cycle hub is easily accessible via various cycle paths, as well as part of a bus terminal route providing accessibility from all areas of the city. Towards the end of 2012 a sheltered cycle path is planned connecting cyclists to the Älvsjö train station so that the rail - cycle parking link is enhanced still further.
