The work on the Scheveningseweg is nearly ready. As of 11 February Tram 1 will resume its regular route. Until the end of March 2019 the contractor will still be working to (re)plant the trees, pave the road and replace the paving stones on the cycle paths with asphalt. Afterwards the road will be completely accessible to all traffic.
For cyclists the Scheveningseweg is an important and widely used route. This is why the municipality replaced the tram tracks but it also renewed the cycle paths so that cyclists have a faster and smoother route.
From paving stones to asphalt
The portion of the cycle path between the Jacob Catslaan and the Peace Palace and between the Kanaalweg and Frankenslag were renewed and paved in the autumn of 2018. This year the portion of the cycle path between the Frankenslag side road and the Jacob Catslaan will be paved.
The portion between the Duinstraat and the Kanaalweg will be renewed later. To ensure that the asphalt does not cause any damage to the trees, the municipality will first inspect the trees. To limit any inconvenience, the cycle path between the Duinstraat and the Kanaalweg will be created at the same time as the roundabout at the Duinstraat-Scheveningseweg.
Diversion and accessibility Scheveningseweg
Due to the work on the cycle path, cyclists will temporarily have to bike on the road. For the safety of the cyclists, the municipality will take these measures:
- For cars the Scheveningseweg will temporarily become a 1-way street with a maximum speed of 30 kilometres per hour.
- There will be traffic wardens and signs.
