The latest addition to Dundee’s bike infrastructure has opened at the city’s railways station.
The 120-bike covered parking space – which cost £400,000 – was funded by Dundee City Council, Tactran and Abellio ScotRail. It was designed by Jacobs and Nicoll Russell Studios and built by Tayside Contracts.
Tactran chairman councillor Brian Gordon said: “Dundee railway station is a major gateway for the city and the wider region.
“Tactran has supported the delivery of this high-quality, safe and secure cycle parking facility and is delighted that it is now open for use.
“It will improve integration between cycling and rail travel, promote sustainable journey choices and encourage more active and healthy lifestyles.”
ScotRail cycling manager Kathryn Mackay said: “We want to join up journeys across Scotland, and that includes those which start and end by bike. The recent investment in the area is a clear sign that Dundee is undergoing a real transformation, and we’re confident that the new facilities will encourage more people to cycle as part of their journey.”
The space is free to use and is located to the north-west of the railway station, next to the car park.
The facility is owned by Network Rail and maintained by ScotRail.
