Den Haag: low congestion by 2009

Den Haag city council voted in favour of a revised traffic circulation plan on Friday morning designed to reduce congestion in the city centre.

The new plan aims to keep as much traffic traveling via the central ring road and not in the city centre. It involves a number of park & ride sites, 16 parking zones situated around the centre and an environmental zone in the inner city, accessible only to clean vehicles.
The result of these measures will be that the city centre will be virtually car-free by 2009, the council said.
The plan has been a headache for the city since February this year when the coalition running the council nearly collapsed because of disagreements about the original plan.
