Since Saturday, November 25, buses can drive past the burned-down Holland Casino Groningen for the first time. Due to the fire in the casino, the road was closed for no less than three months for all traffic. Line buses were also unable to drive past the casino. Now this is possible again.
Buses in both directions
There is one lane available along Holland Casino Groningen, but with a little help from the traffic controllers, buses can run in two directions. Cars are not allowed to drive past the casino in two directions: these vehicles are only allowed out of town and not in.
Problems on Saturday
It's nice that the buses can go past Holland Casino Groningen again, but on Saturdays there are often problems on the way around the casino. Because the blockade on the Steentilburg is gone, many motorists get stuck. If they are used to the new traffic situation, this will hopefully change. For now it is nice that the buses no longer have to turn around and with a little help from the traffic controllers can simply pick up their old route.
