No change for cyclists at Tarthorst

Roelof Kleis

There is not going to be a new, safer cycle path through the Tarthorst residential neighbourhood. Wageningen council cannot decide what the route should look like.

The number of cyclists in the Tarthorst has been a bone of contention for years now. Students coming from the Haarweg or from the town centre pass through the neighbourhood on their way to campus. Most of them take the shortest route, which runs south of the shopping centre where supplies are delivered for the Jumbo supermarket. This creates potentially dangerous situations. The mayor and councillors wanted a route to the north of the shops, past the two primary schools, but this plan met with opposition in the town council. So everything is going to stay as it is.
