As many as 14,000 cyclists use the Korreweg bridge or the GerritKrol bridge every day. The bridge, which dates from 1936, is still the only rotating bridge of its type and sometimes remains open for as long as 15 minutes when a ship is passing through. With so many cyclists, this can cause traffic problems, which is why in 1995 two footbridges were created on either side of the Korrebrug.In this way, pedestrians and cyclists can continue to cross, even when a boat is passing through.The GerritKrol bridge connects the Indischebuurt (Indian neighbourhood) with the Starkenborg and Ulgersmaborg districts. The latter dates from the 1980s and is named after the Ulgersma estate. This used to be where the stud farm is now, at the end of the Pop Dijkemaweg. It was originally intended that people could live and work in the district surrounded by greenery, but due to various circumstances it was decided at the last moment to build the houses closer together.
