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.

AUTOPILOT Pilot Tests @ TU/e Campus 8 -9 December, 2018

During the H2020 project AUTOPILOT one will demonstrate the added value of IoT to Automated Driving. In this project more than 45 partners are collaborating on 6 different pilot sites across Europe with self-driving vehicles and equipping these with additional IoT communication functionalities.

TU/e is also participating in this project (as part of the Brainport area), both bringing an AD vehicle as well as the TU/e campus as testing grounds to the project.
One Automated Driving Toyota Prius will be used on the TU/e campus to test.

Daily test schedule 8 -9 December, 2018
-09:00 - 10:00h: Preparation of tests (initiating AD systems, checking safety systems)
-10:00 - 12:00h: First round of AD driving tests
-13:00 - 16:00h: Second round of AD driving tests

Two routes will be blocked for testing
During the weekend of 8 - 9 December, 2018, the main entrance on Den Dolech and the main entrance on De Zaale will be blocked for general public/traffic, with security gates. Traffic wardens are present to refer people.

See Route 1 and 2 (Paviljoen - Auditorium) below for details.

A detour for cars/cyclist on Den Dolech will be made with access towards Luna, Aurora and the SCC.

Another detour will be made at the Insulindelaan/De Zaale entrance for access to TwinningCenter and MMP.

Restoration paving on the TU/e Campus

Restoration of the road at Horsten and Rondom, near the BBC building / direction Koeltoren / direction terrain East Momentum. On several spots sides of the road will be picked up. Implementation 12 November till 20 December.

Check out the map.

Building site Fontys ER building

Building site design phase 2 (July 6 – June 2019)
The building site is enclosed by building fences. To prevent tripping of the foot construction fences with poles have been placed in the ground near the foot and cycle path. Both the bike as the footpath remain accessible. At the entrance of the TU/e terrain there are barriers for the traffic.

The main entrance of the building will be involved with the building site. The access of this area is on the side of the Groene Loper. In the current situation, the relevant door is an escape door. This door will be provided with a temporary access control via the access control system of Fontys. The building fences near the Athene building will be moved. When the TU/e wants access to Athene, after notification by the contractor, access will be granted.

The performer will use the road and terrain near the Athene building. The construction fences have been placed such a way that the entrance of Athene remains accessible without entering the building site. The site of the Department of Chemical Engineering where chemicals are being saved, always remains available for supply. At the entrance of the building site there will be a porter as from the summer holiday 2018.

TU/e offers the construction personnel/subcontractors the possibility to park at the parking place P11 on the TU/e site, (link to map) with sufficient places. Near the Athene building there are parking places available for employees of the implementation team.

Existing landscape plan
After the completion of the building the landscape plan will be renewed by Fontys, for which MTD Landschapsarchitecten (designer of the Groene Loper) is making the design. The light poles, outdoor lighting, flagpoles and planters do not come back in the design. The landscape will be completely renewed. The barrier and the artwork will be removed during the construction work.

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 email the Frontoffice of Real Estate Management, or call: 040-247 2650.

The constructions

  • as from 3 September, 2018, the pedestrian passage, side pond, is open;
  • the road between MetaForum and Atlas is closed for all traffic, exc. pedestrians, emergency services, and security.
