Arup appointed technical adviser to Rotterdam highway

British consulting engineer Arup has been appointed as technical adviser to the A16 highway north of Rotterdam by the Dutch National Transport Authority.

The 11km-long roadway will provide better accessibility to the centre of Rotterdam and will release traffic pressure on the lower road network.

Arup will be involved in setting up the design, build, finance and maintain procurement route.      

Sander den Blanken, group leader of Arup in the Netherlands, said: "The A16 Rotterdam is an important project because of the social relevance, the complexity and the large scale of activities.

"We are looking forward to collaborating with the Dutch National Transport Authority and the stakeholders to create a safe and accessible Netherlands."

The route will connect the A13 to the A16 at the Terbregse Square. The phases are expected to take more than three years and will be followed by the construction of the A16.
