A24 Blankenburg verbinding
In the coming period, the Netherlands is facing major changes in the areas of technology, sustainability and urbanisation. In addition, the infrastructure, as well as the mobility, will continue to become smarter, safer and greener. “It is nice to discuss the solutions which our sector offers with politicians and what’s needed to keep on building,” emphasises Johran Willegers, infra advocate at Bouwend Nederland. “What better way to do that than by taking a guided tour together with policymakers at this project where the work is actually done.”
The Dutch Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management commissioned the construction consortium BAAK, a partnership between Ballast Nedam, DEME and Macquarie Capital, to realise the A24 Blankenburgverbinding. In 2024, the new A24 connects the A20 at Vlaardingen with the A15 at Rozenburg and includes a deepened junction, a land tunnel, two viaducts, a dam and an immersed tunnel under the river Scheur. The A20 between the new Vlaardingen and Kethelplein junction will be widened by one lane in both directions.
