WCN Editorial Team 21 Jul 2021 EUROPE TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

The municipality of Amsterdam has chosen Arcadis and Fugro for the bridges and quay walls restoration contract in the city centre.

The contract has an estimated value of around €30m to each cooperation partner. The firms are one of three parties involved in the project.

The project includes replacement and renovation of about 850 bridges and 2,000km of quay walls over the next six years.

Under the contract, Arcadis and Fugro will be responsible for all types of engineering services including inspections of the technical condition of objects, soil investigations and supervision of implementation and advice on programming and more.

Arcadis CEO Peter Oosterveer said: “The restoration of historical city centres is vital to their preservation, and Arcadis is proud to be part of this important project aimed at improving quality of life for the citizens of Amsterdam.

“Resilience is increasingly important amid the various environmental threats facing our world, such as extreme weather events.

“At Arcadis, we have a long history of helping to create places where people can live, work, and thrive.”

In May this year, the company was awarded a S$26m contract by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in Singapore to provide additional manpower to manage and supervise the construction of the North-South Corridor (NSC) project.

Singapore’s NSC will feature dedicated and continuous bus lanes along with cycling trunk routes and pedestrian paths. These will benefit the active mobility users and pedestrians, as well as bus commuters.
