The shortest bicycle path between Den Haag and Leiden (along the train tracks) is open.
Construction appears to be finished and there is now a nice wide and smooth path for most of the distance... but they also installed a barrier to keep cyclists from taking a common shortcut.
Why did they put up a fence instead of building a path where people wanted it?
Some of the other construction strategems showed an impatience/anger with cyclists, so is this the end result? Is it private property?
From above with google earth- the angle for turning is very tight... that's why people don't like to do it.
But don't worry, at least they didn't alter or remove the local art.
