Leidseplein Square, Amsterdams cultural and nightlife hub, is to become a pedestrian precinct if plans presented by the local council are approved. Currently a chaotic traffic intersection, the new-look Leidseplein will have a bike park for up to 4,500 bikes and a new underground car park. Buses and trams will all stop in the same place and there are also plans to move the taxi rank to the southern end of the square. Streets around the square will also see a reduction in traffic flow. The plan is now up for public consultation.
