Reguliersdwarsstraat becomes pedestrian zone during summer

The famous Reguliersdwarsstraat will be closed off for traffic during this summer.

The Reguliersdwarsstraat is a street lined with (mainly, but not only, gay) cafe's, restaurants and clubs. On warm summer evenings the street can be packed with people.

Tests in previous years have shown that the closure for cars is a success, so now the city has decided to close off the street during the entire summer, from June 16 to September 18 2005.

The closure is between 9 pm and 7 am, on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
