With a length of two kilometres, Leiden Bio Science Park is the longest science park in the Netherlands. Located near Leiden Central station and on both sides of the A44, the park can be reached easily by train and by car. Thanks to the Rijnland Route, this area of Leiden will soon also be easy to reach from the east. The tunnel under the Plesmanlaan that opened in 2016 already ensures better traffic flow on this central access road.
In the years to come, large-scale parking facilities will be realised at the entrance to the Bio Science Park. In that way, not all traffic has to drive further into the Park. Additional measures are needed to make the western area (in particular the Oegstgeest part, also known as the ‘last mile’) more accessible for public transport and cyclists. Plans for this are currently being studied.
