Good news for people who travel with public transport to the UMCG and the Healthy Ageing Campus: the municipality of Groningen adjusts a part of the Oostersingel and the Bloemsingel for traffic. On this spot, a bus junction will be built, called 'Busknooppunt UMCG Noord'. The municipality wants to make the junction suitable for buses to drive through smoothly, enabling passengers to transfer quickly from one bus to another. The Bloemsingel will be suited by doing so for more and elongated buses.
Why this measure?
- Buses can drive trough better
- Passengers can transfer more quickly
- More comfort at transfer moments
- More safety for cyclists passing the bus junction
- The Bloemsingel will be more adept to more and longer buses (24-meter)
On Monday 4 March, the construction works have begun. During the works, cyclists and pedestrians can keep on using the Bloemsingel both ways. Cars can only use the street one way, from the Vrydemalaan towards the Oostersingel. The buses take a different route during the construction period, existing bus stops will be on hold and are relocated and there are temporary bus stops available nearby.
