Last major construction work projects on Noorderbrug route

The last of the construction work projects for the Noorderbrug route are in sight. Two more major construction work projects are planned from 8 October: the redevelopment of the Boschstraat-Frontensingel junction and the conversion of the roundabout on the Brusselseweg into a junction. Keep reading for all road closures and diversion routes in Maastricht-West. While driving, pay close attention to the yellow signs and take extra travel time into account.

The Cabergerweg between the Statensingel and the Lage Frontweg junctions will be closed until 4 October. As soon as the construction works have been completed and the Cabergerweg is open to all traffic again, the last two major construction work projects will start. Traffic will then have to follow diversions. 

Please note that the schedules are always subject to change, so please be aware that routes may change.

Road closures during phase 1 from Monday 8 October to mid November:

  • Boschstraat between Bassin and Noorderbrug in the direction of Geusselt/A2/A79 and Boschpoort for car traffic.
  • Frontensingel in both directions between P-Sphinx and Boschstraat for all traffic.

Alternatives:

  • Car traffic can travel Noorderbrug to Boschpoort.
  • Car traffic from the Noorderbrug can reach the city centre via the regular route (exit Noorderbrug – Boschstraat).
  • Pedestrians, cyclists, and moped users can continue via and along the work area. Always pay close attention and do not put yourself or your fellow road users in danger. Fort Willemweg can be used to go to and from Boschpoort. 
  • The Sphinx and Cabergerweg car parks will remain accessible via de Cabergerweg.

Diversions

The following diversion applies to car traffic for the duration of the first two phases:

  • From Boschstraat toward Geusselt/A2/A79, the route resumes via Maagdendries, Cabergerweg, and Noorderbrug. 
  • Please note that car traffic from the city centre towards Geusselt/A2/A79 will be diverted via John F. Kennedybrug / John F. Kennedysingel. Please look at the road signs!
  • Please refer to the Smart Map for all the car traffic routes. 

As a result of the construction works, bus numbers 8 and 48 of Arriva and bus number 45 of De Lijn will not stop at the Noorderbrug stop at Boschstraat/Bosscherweg. Passengers can board Arriva buses at the Van Eijckstraat bus stop. Please refer to Arriva's and De Lijn's websites for more information.

New traffic situation after redevelopment

After the redevelopment of the intersection is completed, the traffic situation will change. In order to improve traffic flow as much as possible, motor vehicles will no longer be able to turn left from Boschstraat towards Frontensingel. Traffic to the Frontensingel can continue via Boschstraat – Achter de Barakken – Maagdendries. Ownership of Commandeurslaan will be permanently transferred to Sappi, after which it will be entirely closed to pedestrians, cyclists, and moped users. 

15 October - early December: conversion of Brusselseweg into junction 

The Brusselseweg roundabout – between Fort Willemweg and Nobellaan – will be converted into a junction in a number of phases. Car traffic will experience the most disruptions during phase 1.

Phase 1 - from Monday 15 October to mid November: 

  • The Brusselseweg roundabout, between Frans van de Laarstraat and Fagotstraat, will be closed to all car traffic.
  • Car traffic to and from Maastricht-West will be diverted via Cabergerweg and Peter Huyssenslaan.
  • Brusselseweg will remain accessible to local traffic. 
  • Cyclists and moped users will be diverted around the construction site using the shortest possible route.
  • City buses will follow the diversion route for car traffic. Please refer to Arriva’s website for the diversion routes.

Phase 2 - from mid November until early December:

During phase 2, Strukton will conduct work on the lanes and cycle paths on both sides of the Brusselseweg roundabout:

  • Traffic from east to west and vice versa can continue.
  • Residents must continue to take diversions into account. 
  • Brusselseweg will remain accessible to local traffic. 

Future traffic situation at the Brusselseweg – Fort Willemweg – Nobellaan junction

After the roundabout is converted into a junction, the situation for road users will be as follows:

  • Car traffic from east to west and vice versa will be given right of way.
  • Car traffic will only be allowed to turn right.
  • Car traffic from the north and south will no longer be able to proceed straight across.
  • Cyclists and moped users will be able to make full use of the junction.
  • Only city buses will be allowed to turn left.
