Below are two updates from the Municipality of Groningen about infrastructural projects on the Zernike Campus Groningen:
The 'Upgrade Zernikelaan' project is in the tender phase. The Municipality expects to find a contractor in early 2019 who can carry out the work. As soon as the contractor is known, more details will become clear about the planning and the phasing of the project.
The Zernikelaan will be safer and more attractive. Therefore, the Zernikelaan will be completely renewed in the coming years. There will be a green promenade of 1600 meters long, with green strips and separate roads for busses and other traffic.
In recent times, work has been done to install street lighting on the Paddepoelsterweg, the new bicycle route to the Zernike Campus Groningen. This project has now been completed. Only the part underneath the Linnaeusborg has to be provided with additional lighting. This is planned at the beginning of next year.
The new bike paths are extra wide and this route is often faster, quiet and green. And now also lightened. The use of this route is recommended by the UG and the Hanze. It also helps to reduce traffic jams from the ring road, because car traffic can flow better.
The Zernike Campus Groningen non-stop in transition to provide the best possible surrounding for her community. This leads to several construction projects. Work is alse being done on the access roads to and on the campus.
Campus Groningen offers a handy overview of all construction and infrastructure projects that are taking place on the campus now and in the coming years, including the Zernikelaan, Aletta Jacobshal, Feringa Building and Zernikeplein 7.
