The roads along the Diepenring canal circling the city centre are overdue for maintenance, so the Municipality of Groningen has undertaken to fix them. The roads on both sides of the canal will be repaired between Ebbingebrug and Steentilbrug. Between Ebbingebrug and Kijk in 't Jatbrug, only the road on the north side of the canal will be repaired.
Diepenring inner road completed
The road sections will be repaired and some changes will be made: instead of two lanes for traffic, in the new situation there will be a single lane for cars and a wide bicycle path of red asphalt. The sidewalk will be widened where possible. The inner road of the Diepenring was completed on 1 May 2017 and work has since started on the outer ring road.

The Diepenring project is part of Binnenstad 050, a cluster of projects intended to make Groningen’s city centre more attractive, safer and more accessible.
