After the opening of the new provincial road N201, there is less traffic on the Fokkerweg and the intersection, leaving room for a bus junction. Bus stops for high-quality public transport (HOV) will be placed when the intersection at Schiphol South is finalized. In the future buses can drive a faster route with a higher frequency.
To improve communication with residents and local businesses we have created 3D visualizations of the redesigned street layout around the R-net bus stops in Schiphol South. For the bus lane and intersection we have designed a small and a large pedestrian shelter that connect the bus stops with each other. We advised on the layout of the bus stops and bicycle parking.
Many commuters use public transport to arrive at Schiphol Rijk. In order to allow commuters to travel comfortably and as safe as possible, we have made a design for a canopy where commuters are protected from wind and rain.
The letters ‘Schiphol-Zuid’ are written on the glass walls of the canopy. Together with the gates, this makes the HOV bus junction more visible and recognizable.
The gates over the bus lanes are equipped with solar cells, that are integrated into the glass panels. In terms of design, the gates and the canopy are in line with the R-Net stops at the Fokkerweg and Kruisweg.
