A24 Blankenburg verbinding
The testing and floating process took several days. Before the tunnel parts were ready to be shipped, they underwent extensive testing. The first test took place in the dry dock. For this, we slowly filled the dock with water, causing the two zinc elements to float. Together with consortium partner DEME and client Rijkswaterstaat we then checked the effect of the water on the elements.
The Maas Delta Tunnel is part of the A24 Blankenburgverbinding project. Commissioned by Rijkswaterstaat, Ballast Nedam is realising this project together with consortium partners DEME and Macquarie Capital. With two junctions, a land tunnel and a tunnel beneath the river Het Scheur, we aim to improve the accessibility of the Rotterdam region and contributed to the growth of the economy.
