Improving the public space

Sustainable development of public space and infrastructure
The municipality of Leiden and Leiden University are working together on the improvement of the public space at Leiden Bio Science Park, with the Hartlijn as its center point.

Information

The goal of the project is to improve the overall quality of the park, which is the largest innovation district in the field of Life Sciences & Health in the Netherlands. An important part of this regards improving the accessibility of the area for cyclists and pedestrians in particular, with the Hartlijn as its center point.

The Hartlijn is a bicycle and pedestrian path that connects all central places in the LBSP. In the new situation, traffic on the Hartlijn will have priority over other traffic. The Hartlijn will be unique through the use of color and a strip of medicinal plants. Biodiversity and climate adaptation are important aspects of this project as well. On the Hartlijn, there will be attractive locations to sit and relax, such as benches where you can have lunch.
