The Leiden Bio Science Park is conveniently located between Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. Schiphol airport can be reached in 15 to 20 minutes. The park is located next to Leiden city centre and Leiden Central Station and is serviced by various bus lines. Preparations are currently underway for an R-network connection between Leiden Central and Katwijk. At the end of 2016, the grade separation junction in the Plesmanlaan (OBSP) was realised for car traffic. With this development, the park gained a new access point from the key urban thoroughfare in the west of the city.
The Rhine river route is expected to be delivered in 2022. The Leiden West traffic junction, including the intersection with the Plesmanlaan, is part of this large-scale infrastructure project. This means improved accessibility from the Randstad.
Within the park, work has already begun on the green 'Hartlijn' to improve access for cyclists and pedestrians.
With an area of approximately 110 hectares, the LBSP is one of the largest campuses in our country. Almost half of this area is public terrain. The park is elongated and located in an area that is becoming increasingly urbanised. Due to its size, shape and location, the park also plays a role in the functioning and image of the region. A wide variety of residential areas, high-level business and natural landscapes come together here. With more than 400,000 inhabitants in an ever-closer form of regional cooperation, the so-called 'Hart van Holland' is beginning to gain more significance in the Randstad.
