New bicycle street

The redesign of the van Uvenweg is almost completed. The municiaplity is still busy with planting and in the spring grass will be sown.

In brief all the work which has been done so far: The cycle path among Pomona has been adapted, including a wider bicycle and pedestrian bridge. The above-ground waste containers have been put underground. And in the surroundings all green is maintained, including the enlargement of green space, replanting new trees such as lime, oak and elm and special tree soil is added in the nearby surroundings of existing trees. A pedestrian path runs along the bicycle street (on the side of Ruma Kitha) from Marijkeweg to the Julianstreet. And the exisiting sewage system has been replaied. The new system makes sure that rainwater returns to the soil. For some visual insights, please see this movie https://www.facebook.com/909757355733088/posts/4712036458838473/
