A new tram stop at the site of UZ Gent, the reconnecting of Zwijnaarde to Ghent by tram 21 and the inauguration of Albatros, the longest tram riding in the middle of Ghent … De Lijn and partner in crime New Balls Please are looking back on one hell of a year full of exciting and important events of which each event was covered extensively by the press.
We have been partners for some time now and it’s difficult to say what makes this partnership so great. Is it the same way of approaching things with that same feeling of excitement, preciseness and devotion? Is it the understanding of each other’s needs, wishes and goals? We guess it must be all of that and many more. We guess you know what good partnership means when you both see that because of your collaboration smiles turn on the faces of the public, praising your eye for detail, your choice of catering and your smooth follow-up.
Flashback to our latest project for De Lijn: the inauguration of tram 21’s new traject Ghent-Zwijnaarde. The inauguration of the final stop, Zwijnaarde Bibliotheek, by mayor of Ghent Daniël Termont, Flemish minister of Mobility Ben Weyts and Council Member of Mobility and Public Works Filip Watteeuw, was followed by a cheerful reception in an immense party tent pimped with yellow and grey balloons and provided with a glitter tattoo corner for the children. Almost 1500 local residents enjoyed free drinks, free snacks and music played by Koninklijke Harmonie Zwijnaarde.
