Schedule

The work will be carried out in phases. This way the neighbourhood will remain accessible.

  • Phase 1: The street lights (lamp posts) along the cycle paths will be moved to a new spot. This will take 10 working days.
  • Phase 2: On 1 November 2021 work will start on the Postenkade cycle path and the 3 intersections between the Postenkade and Guirlande (1 and 3) and Wingerd (2).
  • Phase 3: Work will be done on the intersections and the cycle path between the Ringelwikke and Wingerd (4 and 5) and Guirlande (5).

The work will last approximately 4 weeks for each cycle path.

What is going to happen

  • The street lights will be moved to a new spot. This will free up space for the cycle path. The speed bumps at the intersections will be raised. These are located at the Postenkade and Guirlande (1 and 3) and Wingerd (2) and at Ringelwikke and Wingerd (4 and 6) and Guirlande (5). Vehicles will then have to drive more slowly.
  • The posts on the cycle path will be removed. There will be more space between the cycle paths and the hedges.

After the adaptations there will be more space for cyclists and the cycle paths and intersections will be safer.

Accessibility

The contractor will place diversion signs on the work site during each phase.

Cyclists

While work is being done on a cycle path, the cycle path will be completely closed. Cyclists will be diverted using road signs. Cyclists going in the direction of Ypenburg Lyceum will be diverted via the Ypenburgse Boslaan, Laan van Hoornwijck and Laan van Kans.

Pedestrians

The work will have a minimal impact on pedestrians.
