The project for the Netherlands directorate-general for public works and water management, Rijkswaterstaat, is designed to improve traffic flows both around the Hoevelaken junction and on the surrounding roads.
The scheme is still at an early stage and the scope of the contract involves the planning of the work as well as subsequent design and construction. Rijkswaterstaat’s aim is to take full advantage of the creativity of the joint venture parties.
BAM, Van Oord and Arcadis put forward the scheme that best met the project requirements within the available budget, while minimising disruption and scoring well on sustainability.
Planning and environmental procedures are due for completion by the end of 2017 and the final legislative approval is expected in 2018, enabling construction to begin. The aim is for the project to be completed between 2022 and 2024.
