Coming on the Meiseloot from Akkrum one turns left into the Het Deel. After just below 5 kilometers, comes the turn off to Monikerak, going to the turn off into Buitenringvaart and Heeresloot. Buitenringvaart continues to Opsterlandse Compagnonsvaart and Heeresloot into the town center of Heerenveen.
