Tunnel Boutenslaan, Eindhoven 2020

Tunnel is a concrete construction The tunnel under the Boutenslaan in Eindhoven is 21 meters long and about 250 meters high and has a concrete ceiling of 4 meters wide. Both walls are provided with tiles. On both sides the entrance is provided with curved concrete elements. Including the entrances, the total area is about 265 m2. The tunnel is dirty and although graffiti has been removed it looks battered and unkempt. The tunnel is part of an important bicycle route, so there is a lot of bicycle traffic in a relatively narrow tunnel. In order to increase bicycle safety the starting point is that the work, apart from becoming ‘an experience’, enhances safety. The work thus serves as a form of ‘signage’ for bicycle traffic.
