Work on Grote Marktstraat - Voldersgracht

Published: 2 January 2018Modified:

The municipality will carry out work on the intersection between the Grote Marktstraat and the Voldersgracht from 8 to 30 January 2018. The intersection will be adapted so that cyclists and pedestrians are not as much in each other’s way. The intersection with the Wagenstraat was adapted in an earlier phase.

In order to keep the street accessible to emergency service vehicles (ambulance, fire department and police), work will also be carried out at night. Work is planned for 6 nights in January:

  • from Sunday, 14 January to Wednesday, 17 January
  • Sunday, 21 January and Monday, 22 January

Unfortunately a certain amount of inconvenience is unavoidable.


While the work is being carried out, homes, shops and the entrance to the tram will remain accessible to everyone. The builder will lay foot planks where they are needed. Cyclists and emergency service vehicles can continue to use the Grote Marktstraat.

During the project, no bicycles will be allowed to be parked in the Grote Marktstraat. You can park your bicycle in the spaces in the side streets or in the Biesieklette parking facilities.

Rubbish collection

Businesses and residents who put out their rubbish on the Grote Marktstraat are asked to do this at spots designated by signs.


The municipality will do everything it can to ensure safety during the project. Security officers will be placed at the work site and it will be fenced off. Nonetheless work sites are still dangerous spots. It would be wise to remind children about this.
