BAAK, the consortium including Ballast Nedam and DEME, is building the new road connection between the A20 at Vlaardingen and the A15 at Rozenburg.

“The new highway includes a complex immersed tunnel, and highlights the synergies between DEME’s core activities, combining our dredging capabilities with our wide-ranging infra marine engineering skills,” DEME said.

According to Ballast Nedam, the Blankenburg Connection will link the A20 at Vlaardingen to the A15 in the port area, giving rise to a number of significant positive impacts on the accessibility and economic situation of the entire region.

It will feature two intersections, a land tunnel and a tunnel beneath the River Scheur.
