von Andorra nach Mexiko / Zukunftsbahnhof...
hallunke went for a bike ride.
April 13, 2021
Halle is the city of short distances - which can also be seen in today's example.Most of the time I don't necessarily record such short “PillePalle” rounds. But today there was still time before the bike shop opened. On the way there I passed a central part of the city + suddenly remembered that there was something in the newspaper last week (I would dig it out of the pile of waste paper afterwards).First of all, so that you don't get the wrong picture: I am definitely a rail enthusiast. But what was there to read again ...In a nutshell: In the report it was reported that on March 31, 2021 Messrs. Scheuer (yes the), Pofalla and Haseloff (Prime Minister Saxony-Anhalt) had finished tying the railway knot and opened the future station with a small ceremony. In six and a half years, 800 million has been invested in the most modern transport infrastructure. Ok, that's right and a high-performance transport hub has really emerged. DB is testing new concepts and services here in order to increase the satisfaction of travelers and station visitors. All future stations are operated with 100 percent green electricity. I would like to believe that about green electricity.But whatever else they list as a success. For example, there is now an APP that can do nothing more than illustrate to the viewer in five virtual scenarios in colorful / abstract videos what rail (or public transport) could, if he could (or should?). Another highlight should be terminals at which those wishing to travel can create an avatar?!?!? Oops, I thought train had something to do with traveling. So this is the future - well!But then:"... Secure parking spaces for bicycles (heading) ... two automated bicycle parking towers offer secure parking spaces for bicycles - so far unique in Germany. A bicycle service station helps with minor repairs ... "etc.Despite a long search, only one of the two towers described can be found, the capacity is a breathtaking 12 bicycles.I had written that I had time this morning, that gives off thoughts. I did the count, outside of the tower there were 280 bicycles in the entire area around the station (forecourt, west entrance, tram access) connected to all kinds of traffic signs, trees, barriers, paper bins, including a number of very expensive e-bikes as well as individual frames ...And today at the “service station” two kids tried to inflate a tire - they didn't succeed.Well, then I drove on, the bike shop was open in the meantime + ended the PillePalle tour with a detour around the horseshoe lakeOh, from Andorra to Mexico is really not far, in Halle just 5.8 km and further back you even come along Lake Reschen.
Cool tour and I think 20km is 20kmLuckily you recorded it, so everyone can still take part in your interesting reporting
Yes, yes the train. Mainly, however, the transport of people and goods should still be in the foreground even at future train stations. Let's see how that works in the future. 😉
🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️Hello hallunke. Once again a great description. Yes, it's crazy what you can spend money on. We have enough of them. Have saved well over the last few years 🤦♂️ to burn it up now.Well, anyway, this tour is great.On a tour like this, 20 km is a nice thing. 👍👍👍And now, as Christoph Kehse would say, off to the next tour!
Class written 👍
Now, after looking at the visualization for a long time, I've slowly figured out what the bicycle towers mean. What is there on our station forecourt are the two towers - next to each other !!!Two doors = two towers !!! You can also see that 6 bicycles fit in a tower (I had believed 12 bicycles per tower). So the 12 wheels need both towers - what madnessoh + @Hempis:As I said, I'm still a fan of trains and public transport. And in fact it has become a functioning train station (+ above all, it is almost finished, unlike in Stuttgart). So basically positive👍 - but the whole fuss ...?
Very nice report 👍
Maybe the bicycle tower still has a cellar 🙃
@Maik (Dublee):if you look closely at the 3D sketch, there is a revolving chain with 6 "gondolas", the empty gondola is opposite the door - it doesn't get any deeper, no basement
A. Scheuer and two half bicycle towers for twelve bicycles? It fits. If you wanted to see how the professionals do it: Just have a look at Amsterdam Centraal ... the bikes of so many thousands of commuters are there every day. (google: "Amsterdam Centraal Fahrrad") Wasn't that expensive either.
Nice memories, in Amsterdam Central we had our bikes parked before 👍👍👍

I was already standing in front of this bicycle tower, stunned. How can you celebrate something like that? In Amsterdam I also saw the bicycle parking lot in front of the central station. As big as the station forecourt in Halle. And jam-packed. Now you can certainly not compare Amsterdam with Halle. But space for just 12 bikes ...?
