What about "Hij was op de andere kant gegaan"? I.e., must the preposition come proximate to the verb?

The word order is incorrect. However, it's not that the preposition comes before the verb, it's that it has to come after "kant".

  • Hij ging de andere kant op.
  • Hij was de andere kant op gegaan.
