In order to improve traffic flow Nijmegen City Council decided to redesign the Poort Neerbosch intersection. Besides the redesign of the traffic intersection itself, the project included a redesign of the bicycle and pedestrian routes as well. The existing underpasses got a facelift, and a third one was added. All elements of the landscaping were connected in a total refurbishment.
The most eye-catching element of the redesign is the innovative steel portal to which traffic signs and traffic lights have been attached. The portal with its 13 m high pylons and 41 m span is a new landmark and a recognizable gateway to the city of Nijmegen. The intersection is Nijmegens main entrance on the western side of town.
For this project,we teamed up with contractor BAM and landscape design office Landschappartners.
Together, we won the competition for the redesign of Poort Neerbosch.
The redesigned intersection was completed within a year, the innovative steel portal was designed and completed within a six-month time span.
