Several streets around the Eindhoven city centre have been revamped and green elements have been introduced to address existing problems with heat stress and flooding, and to enhance biodiversity.
Waagstraat is a small street for pedestrians and cyclists which previously only included a few small trees. Parts of the pavement was removed and a grassed swale, street trees and grasses were installed on the street. The soil condition and infiltration capacity were also improved as part of the refurbishment.
Bilderdijklaan was transformed into a street for pedestrians and cyclists. Trees, bushes and shrubs were installed on the street to address the problems with heat stress and flooding and to improve biodiversity.
The city installed trees and bushes on a paved bicycle parking located on Willemstraat to make it more attractive and to enhance biodiversity.
H. BOEXSTRAAT & DOMMELSTRAAT
Street trees that grew in limited spaces were given more space to grow and were enhanced with densified soil. Infiltration planters were installed to improve water retention and infiltration.
