The new housing area of Kloosterveen on the edge of Assen has not yet been completed, however most of the transport infrastructure is in place. This photo shows the route from the western edge of the development into the countryside. It is for cyclists and bus passengers only. The cycle path is on the right in this photo and the bus lane (one bus in width, but for bidirectional use) is on the left. Note that while the bus road is not heavily used - there are only buses every few minutes - cyclists are not expected to share space with the buses. This would lead to conflict between cyclists and bus drivers, and a reduction in subjective safety for cyclists.
The sign makes it quite obvious what will happen to a normal car being driven over this obstacle, as does a close look at the second photo.
There are more routes out of the city by bike than by car, which is part of what makes cycling such an attractive option.
This is the cycle path you eventually end up on if you follow the route from the city centre to the new housing estate and keep on riding out the other side.
Earlier I featured another example of a bus road next to a cycle path, and posted about the lack of fears that cyclists have about buses in an environment where cyclists and buses only very rarely mix. There are also other integrated transport posts which might also be of interest.
