Since late 2015, there have been 15,000 daily cyclists, as well as pedestrians, around the clock. No heavy traffic here, just the kind of place the city has been missing. No unnecessary turns, the direction of travel is strictly straight. One side of the corridor is decorated with roughly 80,000 Delft Blue tiles.
