Smart Dutch underpass design accommodates both pedestrians & cyclists

Smart Dutch underpass design accommodates both pedestrians & cyclists

The 360-foot long Cuyperspassage is a tunnel running underneath the Amsterdam Central Station that links the city with the IJ-river. Its design accommodates pedestrians and cyclists simultaneously, by separating the two streams: on the brightly lit, elevated portion, pedestrians are given ample space to amble toward their destinations. Cleaning is made easier, thanks to the presence of rounded corners. The lower, darkly coloured, clearly demarcated "fast-lane" section of the passage is made to funnel people zipping by quickly on bikes. The cyclists' passage also features walls of steel grating to discourage littering or unwanted posters, while noise is reduced by a layer of asphalt underneath.
