The renovation of Leiden’s Valkbrug marked a key part of the redesign of the city centre, as this bridge is an essential connection between the centre and Leiden Central Station used by cyclists, pedestrians and motorists alike.
“Temporary” bridge to be replaced after 15 years
The bridge was named after the nearby windmill, known as De Valk. This marks the spot where people cross the single, crossing over from one area to another whilst enjoying the view of both sides of the water. The Valkbrug, for instance, connects the northern and southern parts of the Lammermarkt.
Van Boekel Bouw en Infra was commissioned by the municipality of Leiden to build a new bridge that meshes with the new design and image of the Lammermarkt.
