Weekly update : 3 November 2017

Road works round the school

During the road works the relevant streets (or part thereof) will be temporarily closed off. We kindly ask you to take the below schedule into consideration when bringing/picking-up your kids (see also enclosed chart):

Tuesday 7 November, construction speed bump Sophialaan/Plein 1813 1 Nassaulaan only accessible via Javastraat
Wednesday 8 November, construction speed bump Sophialaan/ Plein 1813 2 Nassaulaan only accasible via Javastraat
Thursday 9 November, construction speed bump Nassaulaan 19 3 Nassaulaan only accessible via Sophialaan
Friday 10 November, construction speed bump Nassaulaan 11 4 Nassaulaan (section to the school) will be closed-off entirely
Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 November, construction ‘oortjes’ hoeken Sophiaaln – Nassaulaan 5 In principle not affecting accessibility of the school

Throughout the entire road works period we strongly recommend if possible to bring/pick-up your kids by foot or bicycle. In case a car must be used, please park on Plein 1813. It is expected that driving into Sophialaan (via Plein 1813) or Nassaulaan (via Javastraat) will lead to heavy congestion and dangerous situations since all traffic going into these roads will have to reverse to exit via the same route to exit the area.
