Theemsweg route

Smulders will produce one of two steel arched bridges for the Theemsweg route.

On 22 March 2018 the contract was signed for the realisation of the substructure for the Theemsweg route in Rotterdam. The Port of Rotterdam Authority selected the consortium SaVe, comprising the constructing companies BESIX, Mobilis, Dura Vermeer, Hollandia and Smulders. By redirecting a part of the Betuwe Route, the increasing rail freight transport will no longer be obstructed by the ocean shipping traffic, which will also improve the flow between Rotterdam’s port area and the European hinterland.
