This project concerns a chain of radar systems and posts to facilitate ship traffic control in the New Water Way running from Hoek van Holland to Rotterdam, making free passage possible under any weather circumstance.
The buildings are situated next to and in the New Meuse, and are constructed using reinforced concrete. The structures in the Meuse are constructed on the water and furnished with footbridges and systems used to slow down approaching vessels.
