The Hague is like many other cities: it faces increasingly dense traffic. Until 2015, the Neherkade and its three bridges were a traffic blackspot. This particularly affected the central bridge, where motor vehicles had to stop to let trams cross. The situation was detrimental to both traffic flow and air quality. BESIX proposed a solution and implemented this with its partners: to widen the Neherkade and divert some of the road traffic through an underpass.
