Dutch Bus Stop

Dutch bus stop
Cycle parking is provided at bus stops to allow people to cycle to the stop and continue their journey by bus. In this case the shelter is fully enclosed, partly using the noise screening. Screening of this kind allows major roads to pass near to residential areas. The ordinary, semi-detached houses screened from this road are just a few tens of metres away, where the noise from the road is almost inaudible. This is aided using low noise road surfaces. Glass is used to minimise the visual impact. The Dutch take great care to make their environment very liveable.
