Hindrance
You are likely to experience delays due to the work on various parts of the dike. This means that not all driving lanes will be available at all times and the cycle path will be (partially) closed for three years. We will arrange shuttle bus services for slow traffic. The sluices will also alternatingly be closed for short periods of time, ships will have to take another route

Cycle path closed
Since 1 April, pedestrians, cyclists, moped riders and mobility scooters have been able to make use of a free bicycle bus service. This service operates daily from 8am. The last bus leaves at Den Oever at 7pm.
