Zaanstad, train station neighbourhood, De Buiging. Local authorities in Zaanstad have ambitious plans for developing the town centre and train station neighbourhoods: a new city hall, new library, homes, office buildings, shops, etc. Even restoration of a filled-in canal to its former glory. A bicycle bridge across the railway and a provincial road is an integral part of the plans.
