Constructions on TU/e Campus

The TU/e is working on a modern, green campus.Due to the construction of the TU/e Campus (which will be ready in 2020) and events organized in the aforementioned area, certain locations sometimes may be less accessible.

Whenever areas at the TU/e Campus are less accessible, we will list the locations and dates on this page.

De Zaale closed for all traffic as from 10 July till 11 August

As from Monday 10 July till Friday 11 August 2017, the main road De Zaale wil be closed for all traffic: motorists, cyclists, pedestrians. This closure is necessary due to contructions on the roundabout. The situation there is not safe, because of the obscurity whether it is a roundabout or a crossing. After the constructions it will be clear that it concerns a crossing and no roundabout. Also the safety there will be strongly increased, because the crossing will be made higher, and because of the use of zebra crossings and taper of the road. Check out the situation drawing.

From the entrance Insulindelaan, redirect signs will show you the way how to reach the various buildings and parking places.

On the map and traffic plan you can find how the traffic will be lead to the right buildings and parking places.

Pathway east of Den Dolech closed

The pathway east of Den Dolech will be closed and pedestrians will be guided via the Dommelpark. This necessary because the municipality Eindhoven is going to to uncouple the rainwater in the area Rachelsmolen. They are laying a cloaca with only clean water to the Dommel. The last piece is on the TU/e terrain next to the plantation Den Dolech. The constructions take place as from 3 till 27 July.

Check out the drawing.

Limbopad near the bridge obstructed

As from Monday 10 till Friday 21 July, 2017, the Limbopad by the bridge will be obstructed for all traffic.Cyclists and pedestrians will be detoured by reference signs. The top layer of the bridge over the Dommel will be replaced.

Check out the situation.

No passage through De Zaale from Kennedylaan, parking place Auditorium accessible

As from Wednesday 7 June till Friday 1 November 2017, there is no passage possible for all traffic: motorists, cyclists, pedestrians. From the entrance John F. Kennedylaan only the parking site P1 near the Auditorium building is accessible. The part of De Zaale that goes under the Northside of the Atlas building will be completely closed, that's why further passage on De Zaale is not possible. Bus line 104 will ride an alternative route. Please note: this bus does not drive as of 1 July till 27 August.
Motorists can use the other 2 entrances: via Insulindelaan and Prof. Doctor Dorgelolaan. The closure is necessary because of the reconstruction of the new facades on the North side of Atlas.

Check out the drawing.

Detour MMS parking site from 29 May- mid June

Monday 29 May phase 6 of the reconstruction Celebeslaan will take place. This phase will be ready mid June. During phase 6 the MMS parking site will be accessible by car from the side Koudenhovenseweg-Zuid – Celebeslaan. See map.

Part of parking site P11 in use for new building for wind tunnel

As from week 7 (13 February) the design of the building site for the new building of the wind tunnel on the East side of the campus, will take place.
Temporarily 25 parking places on parking site P11will be used for the building site.

In week 8 (20 February) the construction of the building will start with the spade work.
In week 10 (6 March) one will start with the estabilshment.
The completion of the building is planned for half of July (week 28).

Accessibility around Atlas

During the redevelopment of the Atlas building it is inevitable that you will notice something of the constructions. Think of the many trucks which will drive around the building. Also, certain roads will be temporarily less accessible. Van Wijnen will try to keep noise and traffic congestion to a minimum, specifically in exam periods and during the Information Days. For questions and /or complaints during the construction you can contact the Frontoffice of Real Estate Management or call: 040-247 2650.

The constructions

  • Soon there will be a pedestrian tunnel on the North side of Atlas. Via these passage you can walk safely under Atlas. Contractor Van Wijnen provides the security measures. As a pedestrian you are required to use this passage, because there may be fall pieces of glass of the building.
    De Zaale is locally narrowed but remains open for traffic. Soon there will be a drawing of the situation;
  • The pedestrian /bicycle path on the South side of Atlas, on the other side of the pond will be expanded. This because of the closure of the passage South side of Atlas /pond. Check out the drawing of the situation;
  • the road between MetaForum and Atlas is closed for all traffic, exc. pedestrians, emergency services, and security.

Parking prohibition Karpendonkse Plas area

As of July 2016 a parking prohibition will be in force between 8.00 and 10.00 a.m. on working days, for the following streets in the area around Karpendonkse Plas:

  • service road on the north side of Onze Lieve Vrouwenstraat, situated between Javalaan and Sumatralaan;
  • Javalaan, from Onze Lieve Vrouwenstraat to Koudenhovenseweg;
  • Johan de Wittlaan from Javalaan to Koudenhovenseweg Noord;
  • Sumatralaan;
  • Floresstraat;
  • Soembastraat.
    (red lines on the drawing means no parking)

This measure has been decided on in consultation with the municipality of Eindhoven, TU/e, Fontys and the residents. It concerns a pilot till October 2017.

Reason for parking prohibition
The reason for the adoption of this resolution by the municipality of Eindhoven is the fact that the whole area is experiencing nuisance caused by parked cars of parkers who have no designation within this area, such as users of the TU/e site. Due to the commencement of metered parking for employees on the TU/e Campus and the closing of the service road O.L. Vrouwestraat (which has meanwhile been opened again), increasing parking pressure is felt in that area. The proprietor IJzeren Man experiences a lot of nuisance because of the fact that his own visitors cannot find parking spaces in that neighborhood. Moreover, many residents and other interested parties have reported inconvenient parking behavior. Cars parked on the roadway and the sidewalk are leading to a poorly organized traffic situation here.

We emphatically want to ask TU/e employees to observe the parking regulations and not to park in front of entrance and exit ramps, on sidewalks and so on.
