Planning and Phases

The construction works were started in June 2014 and had to be completed mid-April 2015. Due to extra construction work at the main square, the project was completed on 30 April. This means there was only a minor delay of nine days. Taking into account  the unforeseen construction works and the changing weather conditions, both Den Ouden Contracting Firm and the municipality of Geldermalsen are happy with this completion date.

During construction, road users were confronted with temporary traffic changes, such as diversions, speed limits and partial narrowing of roads or closures. Surrounding houses and shops were accessible to pedestrians throughout the construction period.
