    Speed bumps

    To improve traffic safety 3 speed bumps will be put in place: 2 on the Koningin Emmakade side and 1 on the Waldeck Pyrmontkade side. These speed bumps will be constructed while work is being carried out on the Sweelinckplein. A speed bump was already placed earlier on the Waldeck Pyrmontkade side.

    What is already ready

    Different sized plants have already been planted. They make the square tidier and make sure it is safer. This was 1 of the requests by residents.
