A large part of the Schilderswijk will be difficult to reach in the coming months. Road works are being carried out in several streets, for example the Wouwermanstraat will get a new sewerage system and the asphalt of the Vaillantlaan will be replaced.

For the new sewerage system under the Wouwermanstraat, that street, part of the Parallel road and the intersection with Vaillantlaan and Hoefkade closed. Furthermore, the Vaillantlaan between Parallelweg and Van der Vennestraat will soon be closed.


Work will start Monday 17 April. Pedestrians can walk past the work, while there are diversions for cyclists, cars and public transport. Motorists can drive via Neherkade, Erasmusweg, Moerweg Soestdijksekade, Zuiderparklaan and Loosduinsekade.
