Because an increasing number of travellers is now cycling to and from stations, the demand for good bicycle parking is growing. Tens of thousands of Easylift+ bicycle racks have already been delivered and installed at stations across the Netherlands.
There are currently 370,000 bicycle parking places at railway stations in the Netherlands. ProRail, responsible for the Dutch railway network and storage facilities for bicycles at stations, predicts that around 600,000 bicycle places will be needed within the next ten years.
Given the expected growth in the number of rail passengers, ProRail decided to issue a call for tender for the construction of 100,000 extra parking spaces for bicycles. VelopA won this tender with its two-tier bicycle parking system, the Easylift+. Over the next five years, VelopA will provide 65,000 bicycle parking places for ProRail. Tens of thousands of Easylift+ bicycle racks have already been delivered and installed at stations across the Netherlands. One of the locations is the Nunspeet railway station.
