N522 Replacement of the Ouderkerk Bridge, Ouderkerk a/d Amstel

The N522 Replacement Bridge Ouderkerk project involves the demolition of an existing bridge over the Amstel River, the construction of two new bridges and the adjustment of the connecting infrastructure. A special feature of this project is the construction of the bascule cellar on the bank, so that after completion it can be moved to its final position.

Dike reinforcement Markermeer dikes, Hoorn

The Markermeer dikes between Hoorn and Amsterdam protect over 1.2 million North Hollanders from the water. In a number of places this dike no longer meets the safety requirements. The Markermeer Dikes Alliance is therefore reinforcing over 33 kilometers of dikes and ensuring that they are safe again for the next 50 years.
