Witteveen+Bos Busy with Dyke Reinforcement Project in Limburg

Plans to strengthen the dykes in Buggenum, Steyl – Maashoek and the Willem Alexander harbor in Roermond have taken a significant step forward, according to Witteveen+Bos.

The preferred alternatives for these dyke sections have now been identified by district water authorities Waterschap Limburg and involves the route and the type of flood defense.

The main roles of engineering and consultancy firms Witteveen+Bos and Arcadis in this process included environmental research, technical design, landscaping, environmental management and administrative preparation.

The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure & Water Management, Rijkswaterstaat (the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management), Provincie Limburg, seven municipalities and Waterschap Limburg have been working together on the Northern Meuse Valley flood protection program since August 2016.

Identifying the preferred alternatives for the dyke sections Buggenum, Steyl – Maashoek and the Willem Alexander harbor in Roermond marks the completion of the exploration phase. The dyke sections will now enter the plan development phase.

In this next phase the preferred alternatives and their incorporation will be further elaborated. The detailed design will be laid down in a Water Act project plan. This plan and the associated permits will then go through a procedure. Stakeholders can then respond formally to the plans.
