After the symbolic opening in March by His Majesty King Willem-Alexander, the over ground landscaping of the Groene Loper (Green Carpet), an example of public green infrastructure in Maastricht, had continued in full swing. After transferring 80% of the original A2-line high-speed traffic underground, the 2 kilometers long part of Groene Loper between Geusselt and Europaplein was finally completed and opened to the public on 13 June.
Within the design of the Green Carpet, slow traffic is prioritized. Pedestrians and cyclists get plenty of space and priority in the middle yellow zone. High-speed cyclists, e-bikes or scooters will have to opt for the car lane, where due to the optically narrow road profile and implementation of atmospheric landscape and public space elements, users are expected to be stimulated to drive slower than the maximum permitted speed of 50 kilometers per hour.
What remains to be completed is the connection between the Stadionweg and the Severenstraat, the Geusseltpark and another bridge over the Geusseltvijver which are expected to be finished in the second half of 2018. Images by Fred Berghmans, courtesy Projectbureau A2 Maastricht.
