The Heisterbrug has recently been reopened for traffic. The Heisterbrug (outside the built-up area) is designed as a bicycle street and is one of the road sections that is part of the Beekdaelen route.
By identifying a street as a bicycle street, the municipality of Schinnen wants to ensure that car traffic declines on the spot. In addition, the layout of a bicycle street forces the motorist to reduce his speed.
The bicycle street on the Heisterbrug is characterized by a narrow asphalt runner with on both sides the SecuBric 82 cm of Swaans Beton. Cyclists are on the asphalt and motorists use the SecuBric verge pavement in opposite traffic. This discomfort must force the driver to adjust his behavior to suit this traffic situation.
