Projects: WarmteStad and Upgrade Zernikelaan

The closures and diversions are due to essential work for two projects in the summer of 2019. WarmteStad is a project by the Municipality and Waterbedrijf Groningen, who are constructing a heat grid between Zernike and Planetenlaan along Jaagpad (Reitdiep).

In the Upgrade Zernikelaan project (2019-2021) the Municipality of Groningen, Hanze UAS Groningen and the University of Groningen) aim to improve the traffic situation and overall appearance of Zernikelaan. The plan is to make it greener, safer and generally more attractive. This summer, it involves renovation of the roads, bike lanes and exits from the ring road near the main entrance to the campus. Traffic lights will be erected to regulate the traffic using the exits.
