PROVINCE OF UTRECHT
The Uithoflijn was officially opened on December 14th. Minister Cora van Nieuwenhuizen, councilor Lot van Hooijdonk, deputy Arne Schaddelee and Gerrit Spijksma, director of public transport, were present at the opening for the new tram connection between Utrecht Central station and Utrecht Science Park. ID310 developed a theatrical welcome gate in U-OV style. This decor piece was both the press image and the stage where the interviews, the funny sketch by the tram ambassador and the solemn pin ceremony took place. After the official act, the tram ambassador invited the visitors and national press to follow her on the orange carpet to the platform. Under the guidance of swinging live percussion, tram 22 drove away for the very first time. ID310 organized the special opening event on behalf of the Province of Utrecht.
