The municipality has drafted a new design for the Anna van Buerenstraat. There will be ample space for pedestrians and cyclists. The draft design is available for inspection until 13 October 2020.

What is going to change

The street will become safer with a good design and better lighting. A sidewalk will be made on both sides of the street. The road from the New Babylon CS parking garage will be somewhat lower than the street. This way it is clear where the cars need to drive. The street will get the same paving stones and benches as on the Anna van Buerenplein. The form of the benches allows trees and bushes to be planted in the street.

Draft design on view 

Area residents and other interested parties can submit their reaction to the draft design for the Anna van Buerenstraat. The deadline is 13 October 2020.

The draft design can be viewed:

Once the design has been finalised, a builder can start the project in the 1st quarter of 2021. The street will then be ready in the 2nd quarter of 2021.
