Assen, Netherlands. What was once a perfectly good road for driving on is being converted into a "bicycle road". This involves cutting a metre wide strip from the middle of the road, leaving two single direction 2 m wide cycle paths. The gap is to be filled with a bumpy surface which is unpleasant to drive on. It will be a through road for bikes, but not for cars.

Residents will be able to drive along here to reach their houses, but they will be considered to be "guests of the bicycles". It will be illegal to park a car on this "bicycle road".

On the other side of the canal is a parallel road to this one with a 3 metre wide cycle path alongside it. This is shown in #11805
