Project Summary

What we're doing

We’re installing facilities so people can change how they travel mid-journey. This includes safe, covered, and well-lit areas to store a bike or scooter for longer periods of time, as well as the ability to charge e-bikes and scooters.

The new facilities include:

  • new stainless steel bike racks
  • covered bike shelters (green roof and solar panels to be assessed)
  • bike repair stations
  • scooter and e-bike charging stations.

Why we're doing it

In 2022, we ran a survey to ask where you would like future parking infrastructure for bikes and scooters.

We also asked you what is working well with our current bike and scooter parking, and what is not working, so we can make improvements.

The feedback provided through the survey has informed this instalment of bike and scooter parking throughout Hamilton.

Council’s vision for our transport network is that more people choose to travel on foot, by bus, or using micro-mobility devices such as bikes and scooters. 

This project is funded by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Transport Choices programme and it will help create a connected network across the city, supporting Council’s move to a low emissions transport system in response to climate change.

This project will

  • Increase bike and scooter parking options

  • Provide e-bike charging stations

  • Safe areas for mid-journey stops

Where are we at

    With final design and construction approval from Waka Kotahi, we expect work to begin in December 2023.
