New roundabout in Delft – Delflandplein

As part of a road diet, the Delflandplein roundabout was retrofitted in 2009 to accommodate the high-capacity roads and densely populated neighborhood of Voorhof. The intersection had been signalized with multilane approaches on all four legs. Now it’s a single lane roundabout, with a single approach and departure lane at each leg. It still allows a high capacity of pedestrians, bicycles, motor vehicles, and public transit vehicles to pass through safely. To traffic engineers, the roundabout proves effective; despite the busy streets and heavy bike and pedestrian flow, Delflandplein aids the flow of traffic even in rush hour, decreasing delay time from 90 seconds to ten seconds.
