It is important to link different means of transport together to ensure sustainable and future-capable mobility in Hamburg. Bike+Ride locations (B+R) at which bicycles can be parked before the journey is continued on public transport act as a link between cycle traffic and the city’s public transport.
The area adjacent to the Kellinghusenstraße subway station was re-planned during the course of the B+R development concept decided by the Hamburg Senate. The aim of the concept is to provide attractive linkage points to public transport following a uniform standard.
In this project over 200 bicycle holders for 400 bicycles and a bicycle parking garage with two levels for 600 bicycles were planned within a radius of 60 m to the station so that passengers would have a direct connection with the subway station after parking their bicycles. In addition an area was planned for a CityBike station, which makes returning rented bicycles easier. Car, cycle or pedestrian traffic was not affected by the construction measures.
