Infranea supports TEC in future-proofing the tunnels of Amsterdam
Consortium De Groene Boog is constructing a new energy-neutral motorway between the A13 at Rotterdam The Hague Airport and the A16/A20 at Terbregseplein. The 11km-long A16 Rotterdam ensures that traffic on the A13, A20 and surrounding local roads will soon be able to flow more smoothly. The new connection contributes to better accessibility, and the quality of life in the region.
The Koningstunnel is a complex structure next to the central station in The Hague, with entrance and exit lanes and differences in the number of lanes per traffic tube and tunnel section. This tunnel also contains as many as 40 technical installations, including lighting, ventilation, traffic detection, etc. In 2019, all obsolete equipment will be replaced and new equipment will be fitted to meet new tunnel safety requirements. The service building will also be modernised and expanded.
The Lek canal connects the River Lek with the Amsterdam Rhine canal, thereby forming an important shipping connection between Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The monumental Beatrix lock, with its two gullies, formed a bottleneck on this connection because of the increasing number of ships and the dimensions of modern-day pusher tugs. Rijkswaterstaat decided to build a third lock chamber to ensure that waiting times for shipping remained acceptable.
The Noorderlijn project makes the north of Antwerp accessible in various ways by tram and metro. The Operaplein will also be transformed into a safer environment for cyclists and pedestrians, with only one tram stop and a parallel road for local traffic at the surface. Underground parking, bicycle storage and the existing pre-metro station will be renovated and expanded. The Rooseveltplaats will also be redesigned to ensure better safety.
