We have presently a big problem regarding the traffic in front of our houses. Presently there are city inbound 2 traffic lanes and 1 cycling path. At the other site, where the city outbound traffic is, we have 2 traffic lanes Graafseweg outbound, 1 traffic exit lane to the left (Groenestraat), 1 traffic exit lane to the right (Wolfkuilseweg) plus a separate service road annex cycling path:
On a rainy 10 January 2020, the present situation, city inbound.
The people, living at this part of the Graafseweg, have limited parking space (unless you ha a parking lot at your property, but that is limiting the size of your frontyard). And because the Graafseweg is a straight connection from the outskirts of the city towards the city center, this track (50Km/31M) invites to speed limiting. Public transport (bus lines 2, 99, 331) have to mix with the normal traffic, creating sometimes hilarious situations at the 3 nearby busstops. But… there is hope. The city council decided last week, that the present situation is too stessful and too dangerous. And there is a plan…
The same part of the Graafseweg as on the picture “10 January 2020”, but now with 1 inbound traffic lane, 1 inbound bus lane, a cycling path and the enlarged footpath. Between the bus lane and the traffic lane there is a “green separation wall”. City outbound the same situation, but in addition there will be a parking lot at the service road.
