Diepeveen unveils new viaduct in Noorderpar

AMSTERDAM- This year’s edition of the Noorderparkloop mini-marathon witnessed the unveiling of a new viaduct linking two areas of the Amsterdam Noord borough of Noorderpark.

“It is an important step in the development of the new Noorderpark”, said municipal official Kees Diepeveen, who officiated proceedings Sunday. “With the coming of the new viaduct it is easier to cross from one part of the Noorderpark to the other both by foot and bike,”

A total of 40 competitors attended the 11km shot marathon, although the organizers said they had anticipated a much higher number.

Bad weather conditions affected attendance.

Latecomer Ayoub Benchabaane took honors despite starting almost three minutes after other participants.

The event is a curtain raiser for the Damloop, which will take place Sept. 18.
