The completion of phase two of the Luchtsingel connecting the Schiekade with Pompenburg officially opens on Friday 13 July at 19.00 with a public performance. Everyone is welcome! 

Eleven weeks ago, this project won the 1st Stadsinitiatief contest, launching the construction of the Luchtsingel pedestrian walkway and the development of the surrounding public space. Now, as part of the Stadsinitiatief, the connection with the Hofbogen is underway, with plans to lay a park at Pompenburg in the spring of 2013.

The section of Luchtsingel spanning the Schiekade was installed on the night of 2 and 3 July. Grootlemmer, a specialist Friesland-based construction company, will complete stage 2 of the project on Thursday 12 July, installing the stairway on the Pompenburg side. We’d like to celebrate this victory over car traffic with all the crowd-funders, ambassadors, partners and Rotterdammers who support the project.

The Luchtsingel is an initiative of ZUS and part of the 5th IABR: Making City.
