Rijkswaterstaat is expanding the floodgate complex at Eefde with a second floodgate. The waiting times are too long and the current floodgate needs major maintenance. The floodgate at Eefde is an essential logistical link in the European shipping connection. The construction of a second lock chamber ensures shorter waiting times and therefore better accessibility to the ports of Twente. In collaboration with Tappan, we worked on the 3D visualization of the new floodgate and the representation of the northern area that is being redesigned in the landscape.
A new perspective for the northern site
The area around the complex will soon again be a place where, in addition to playing and walking, you can look at the ships sailing through the new floodgate. Aside from the trees and hedges, the northern area will also have an amphitheatre, a slide and a viewing area. The atmospheric impressions show where these will be installed.
