Improved road safety by separating mopeds/cyclists and cars
A new layout of Nieuweweg between Kamperland and Wissenkerke must reduce the number of accidents. In the previous situation, mopeds/cyclists and motorists shared the same road. This had to be separated in the new configuration and was, indeed, realised with a new road layout which incorporated a separate two-way cyclist lane running adjacent to the road. The challenges were the cadastral boundaries and the location of cables and pipelines, not to mention the fact that the Nieuweweg acts as a partial regional flood defence.
