Western section of bicycle path closed
The renovation work on the eastern section of the bicycle path along the Zernikelaan has been completed and the path is now suitable for two-way traffic. This means that the western section, the ‘return lane’ along the pond, can be closed. As of the second week of April, cyclists should use the eastern section instead.
The redesign of the bicycle path means that the western section of the Zernikelaan, between Kapteynborg and the Blauwborgje exit, will no longer be used. This lane was already closed to car and bus traffic. Road surface repair works are no longer being done, as the area is part of a major renovation project in which the entire Zernikelaan will be improved in the coming years.
Where will the new Feringa Building be located?
The following impressions show where the new building will be placed. The road Nijenborgh - on the east side of the campus - will therefore be closed. Once the demolition of Nijenborgh 4 is completed, a park-like setting will be created with wide bicycle and walking paths.
