Central Government Real Estate Agency (Rijksvastgoedbedrijf) starts dismantling old prison
The first phase of the dismantling of the old prison will start at March 14th, 2019. The decommissioning is planned in three phases.
Phase one lasts until 15 April 2019 and concerns the relocation of the cell containers and various fencing.
In order to limit the inconvenience as much as possible for other road traffic, a temporary dam will be made from the dirt road opposite of the prison to the site of the stadium. The containers will be brought to their final destination via large-scale transport via the stadium site. Transhipment also takes place on the stadium grounds. A few containers might be temporarily placed here.
The majority of the containers will be deployed within the walls of the new prison at Plantage Aruba. In addition, a few containers are being moved to other (government) agencies, such as the SGB and Integrated Neighbourhood Approach (in Dutch: Integrale Wijkaanpak). All containers and fencing will be reused.
