The new road will lead to improved access between Rotterdam and The Hague, meaning pressure on the Delft, Midden-Delfland, Lansingerland and the Westland (A13) road network. The route runs through a historically vulnerable polder landscape. The missing 7 km link of motorway between Delft and Schiedam is only allowed on the condition the road cannot be heard, seen or smelled.
ARCADIS created a complete design and integration plan optimally combining landscape, architecture, water, traffic, nature, air and noise. The plan, with a deepened positioning and tunnel, fits in with the valuable polder landscape that includes levee bodies, an aqua-eco-duct and repairing historic connections. The unique aqua-eco-duct forms the differentiation of the road, which is entirely subordinate to the landscape.
