Update April 2008: A meeting with city officials brought the information that this is only a secondary path in this direction. The primary bike route is to be 5 metres wide and parallel with this one on the other side of the canal.

The "bicycle road" on the other side of the canal while under construction is shown in #13318.

This is a new three metre wide cycle path on Vaart ZZ with a pedestrian pavement of around 2.5 metres. The road and bike path are both being improved here. In the case of the cycle path, an existing segregated path is being replaced with a better one, and the road junctions are being made more favourable to cyclists. There will be a grass verge between the bike path and road.

To make room for all this, the canal has been shifted sideways in a northerly direction. On the north side of the canal, the road is being reduced to not much more than a cycle path.

Note how they have finished the pavement and cycle path first. The road is coming later on the rough ground to the right of my bicycle.
