Major maintenance on Gubbelstraat; first closure next week
Next Tuesday and Wednesday, 21 and 22 November, Gubbelstraat will be closed to all traffic. A preliminary survey will then be carried out for later major maintenance.
The natural stone of the roadway will eventually be renewed. This is because the current boulders lying there cannot bear the heavy load of passing buses. This creates holes in the pavement, resulting in dangerous situations for cyclists in particular.
The work will take place from 19 February to 1 May next year. Gubbelstraat will also be closed to traffic during that period. Buses will take the "Carnaval route" during those months, via Het Bassin and Van Hasseltkade.
After this period, the intersection Maasboulevard - Gubbelstraat - Wilhelminabrug will also be resurfaced.
