Nelson City Council has been looking at ways to encourage more people to use active transport to travel into and around our Smart Little City. To do this, we need to make sure we have the facilities to make it easier for people to do this.

Council now provides two sheltered bike stands in Nelson. These are in locations that people regularly asked for more bike stands. One is in Montgomery Square carpark (outside pathway to WINZ) and another on Trafalgar Street in front of Civic House (110 Trafalgar Street).

Each stand provides safe, secure and sheltered parking space for 60 bikes each.

This project is now complete.
