In the weeks after the official opening the Moreelsebrug is a big success and keeps receiving huge appreciation of the citizens of Utrecht. Not only because the new connection across the railway zone drastically shortens the route between the east and west side of the station area for pedestrians and cyclists, but also because it lends itself perfectly for just making a stroll, seeing the city of Utrecht from a different perspective and for making awesome pictures. The online architecture platform Architectenweb for instance identifies the bridge with its central row of trees as a raised esplanade.
‘Utrecht omarmt de Moreelsebrug’ (Utrecht embraces the Moreelse bridge) is the header in the AD-article by Mathijs Steinberger last week. Click here to view the online story. Or check out #Moreelsebrug.
