Papendrecht, 1 October 2018
Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) has won the N69 New Connection tender for the construction of a new road connection linking the N69 provincial road south of Valkenswaard with the A67 motorway at Veldhoven in the south of the Netherlands near the Dutch-Belgian border. The project includes numerous new civil engineering structures as well as adaptation of the existing road network. The final award of the contract with a value of over EUR 80 million by the province of Noord-Brabant will take place in December. The execution phase of the project will start in early 2019 and last three years, followed by a 10-year maintenance period.
During the execution phase, Boskalis will construct a new access road to the N69 of around 8.5 km long, reconstruct a 7.3 km stretch of the existing N69-Zuid road between the Belgian border and Valkenswaard and adapt two other connecting roads. Through this project, the province aims to improve traffic distribution, traffic safety and livability in the Dutch-Belgian border region.
During execution of the work Boskalis will use biofuel to reduce CO2 emissions from its equipment. Boskalis will realize this project using the broad expertise that is present in its Dutch organization in the areas of raw materials, earthmoving, concrete technology and road construction.
