Theemswegtracé - foundations

Ambitious infrastructures accommodating the growth of rail transport to the port of Rotterdam

Share on:  

Construction of a four-kilometre elevated railway viaduct, including two metal arch bridges. The Theemsweg rail link will considerably improve the accessibility and connection of the port of Rotterdam to the European hinterland.

New railway line

The new railway line will run for around 4 km along an elevated rail viaduct and over two arch bridges and connect back to the existing railway line at the A15.

The Port of Rotterdam Authority has awarded the building contract for the substructure to the SaVe consortium, consisting of BESIX, Mobilis, Dura Vermeer, Hollandia and Iemants. The project is financed by the European Union, the Port Authority and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management.

Building work began in September 2018.
