|This temporary traffic light is standing in a concrete filled old oil drum... |
all the other road infrastructure on the picture is temporary too.
|Cycle path closed, a diagonal crossing brings cyclists to the temporary cycle path on the other side of the street.|
|The kerb (curb) with the arrow should also have been leveled, just like the ones to the right of it.|
|Boys will be boys! Protected from buses by the steel divider this boy thought a wheely wouldn't be a problem.|
|Concrete dividers and a painted cycle lane. Only acceptable as temporary cycling infrastructure.|
|Once a freeway entrance, now a temporary cycle path.|
|Paint hardly ever works... she didn't get where she had to walk.|
The video gives you a feel of the area as it is now. Not perfect for cycling but it is quite all right.
The video has a Japanese flavoured surprise at the end.
The urban redevelopment project is not only about building the new station or 'Public Transport-Terminal' for trains, trams and buses, it is also about redesigning the shopping mall and building theaters, cinemas, hotels and a new council office. All the streets in the area will be redeveloped for the changed traffic flows and the historic city moat (that was turned into a motorway in the 1960s) will return to the city. There is an elaborate -even in English- website for this mega-project. The information video gives you a quick and good overview of the size of this project.
