BRIDGES & TUNNELS
The Netherlands has thousands of bridges and many road tunnels. Most are built to bridge a waterway. Here we discuss the most controversial bridges and tunnels in the Netherlands.
The Martinus Nijhoff Bridge is a cable or cable-stayed bridge over the river Waal near Zaltbommel. The bridge was opened on January 18, 1996 by Minister Jorritsma of Transport, Public Works and Water Management . The bridge was built to replace the old and too narrow Bommelse Brug from 1933, which was demolished in April 2007.
The Moerdijk bridges connect the Eiland van Dordrecht in the province of South Holland with the province of North Brabant across the Hollandsch Diep. They are named after the village of Moerdijk on the south side of the bridges.
