The GPS operators have the chance to adapt their information in time, which can next be downloaded by motorists. The new mobility plans give pedestrians more room for manoeuvre on the Anspach Avenue and the Beurs area among other places, but this also means car drivers will have to adapt. Some fear a complete chaos on the opening day, which led the city authorities to start a large-scale information campaign.
GPS data banks have been adapted; the changes involved some 100 adaptations. The changes should reach 80 per cent of GPS users in time, it is claimed. In the meantime, works have started to prepare the changes on the field. Over 1,000 traffic signs have to be removed, reinstalled or changed.
