During the upcoming New Year, the municipality of Helmond will do a test with firework-free zones. These zones are the surroundings of the Elkerliek hospital and the animal park in the Warande. In these areas, you are not allowed to use fireworks during the turn of the year. These areas were carefully chosen to limit the inconvenience for patients of the Elkerliek hospital and the animals in the Warande as much as possible. Enforcement takes place through, among other things, camera surveillance.

As of 9 december 2018 the timetable of buses in Southeast Brabant will change. This is said by Service provider Bravo. Every year in december the new timetable of public transport commences. The reason the departure times have changed, is because the NS train times at a number of stations will also change as of 9 December 2018. With the new timetable, passengers get better connections, sometimes different line numbers and changed routes with other times.
