During the rush hour, 8000 cyclists use the Bornsesteeg. This makes Wageningen's country lane busier that Utrecht city centre.
Given the amount of recorded traffic, it is not surprising that most of the cyclists feel unsafe along the lane. De Vries: 'We have conducted a hundred interviews. Although no one has actually said that it's very dangerous, it's not great either to cycle here during rush hours. It's chaos. There are no pavements and there's not enough space at the traffic lights. Trucks making deliveries plough past, while cars try to sneak through all that traffic. You'll come across broken road dividers which were only put in last year.'
