To avoid inconvenience, a special access road has been constructed in Vught for the transport of suspects between the Extra Secure Institution (EBI) and the courts. The institution is also building its own courtroom.

Mayor Van de Mortel of Vught said this on Tuesday in the NOS Radio 1 Journaal. About three hundred times a year a large column passed through Vught. According to the mayor, that was not an ideal situation, where children go to school and hundreds of people cross the road every day.
This involved an average of three to five cars, often accompanied by a helicopter, that drove through the built-up area at more than 100 kilometers per hour.
This is a temporary road, because it has been constructed through a nature reserve.
To limit the number of criminals’ movements, the PI in Vught is also building its own courtroom. It should be ready in 2025. It will be a small room where judges can, for example, hold pro forma hearings. The courtroom costs around 15 million euros, the Minister of Legal Protection previously reported.
Image connections with the EBI for hearings would already be possible.
