Next Thursday, 14 August 2014, the pontoons that will serve as bicycle parking spaces on the Amsterdam Roeterseiland Campus in the coming years will be hoisted into the canal.
The steel pontoons will be delivered by trucks that will drive carefully along the Nieuwe Prinsengracht to the location on Nieuwe Achtergracht. There a crane-loaded truck positioned close to the main entrance of building B/C/D will lower the platforms into the Nieuwe Achtergracht canal. This is bound to be a spectacular sight.
However, the trucks driving back and forth may cause some temporary inconvenience. They will leave the site by reversing along the same route they followed on the way in. The hoisting of the pontoons will be completed in 1 day.
Images of this event will follow as soon as possible.
