A 6,000-space bike park is about to open in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and it’s quite unusual: it’s built underwater.
The place is underwater in a pond in front of Amsterdam Central Station, cycling magazine Weelz reported. To set up these rooms, workers had to drain the water from the Open Havenfront.
The budget for this achievement was 60 million euros (approx. 87 million US dollars). This underground location creates more space for pedestrians and cyclists on the surface.
On Twitter, one of the civil engineers who worked on this project, Anton Nikitin, shared a preview of some photos of this new, modern-looking parking lot.
The city of Amsterdam is scheduled to inaugurate it at the end of January.
