Published: 19 August 2021Modified: 19 August 2021

The municipality will replace the asphalt on the Escamplaan-Nieuweweg from the Lozerlaan to the border with the municipality of Westland. At the same time the shoulder of the road will be fixed up to improve rainwater drainage. The work will take place from the end of August until the end of September 2021.

Project

The asphalt on the Nieuweweg is in poor condition. This is why it needs to be replaced. This is what will happen

  • the bus stop will be temporarily moved
  • the shoulders on both sides of the road will be fixed up
  • the bus stop will be reconstructed
  • the central reserve will be fixed up
  • the top layer of asphalt will be removed
  • the road will be paved.

    Nuisance

    The municipality will try to limit any inconvenience. Work will take place from Monday to Friday between 7.00 and 17.00 hrs. Removal of the old asphalt and the paving work will take place in the weekend. During this weekend work will be carried out day and night. The lane will then be closed this entire weekend. Removing the old asphalt will make a lot of noise.

    Safety

    The municipality will do everything within its power to ensure safety during the project. Nevertheless work sites remain dangerous spots. You are advised to warn children about this danger and to keep them away from the work site.

    The Nieuweweg will remain accessible during the work on the shoulders of the road. Both directions of the road will be completely closed during the weekend from Friday afternoon, 17 September at 17.00 hrs. until Monday morning, 20 September at 6.00 hrs. Traffic will be diverted. You can see the diversion routes below.

    Pedestrians and cyclists

    Nothing will change for pedestrians and cyclists during the week. While work is taking place in the weekend, the cycle path will become a 2-way path on the side of De Uithof. Pedestrians can make use of the existing footpath on the side of De Uithof. Traffic wardens will be standing by the crossings.

    Public transport

    The route will remain open for public transport on weekdays. However, the De Uithof bus stop at the Madepolderweg will be moved during the project. While the road is being paved in the weekend, the bus route will be diverted. Both stops will then be closed. Read more on www.ebs-ov.nl/haaglanden.
