The road situation will be adjusted for the new bridge layout, increasing the overall capacity of the junction. The old sewer system will in the immediate vicinity also be renewed.
A new bicycle underpass will be constructed below the Meulestede bridge at the canals right bank. This will create a conflict-free transit road for bicycles with good connections to the wider scheme of bicycle paths.
For this project, the quay walls will be modified to match with the elevated topography of the bridges. A new building will be constructed to house the bridges electrical equipment.

- Architectural design (in co-operation with Omgeving)
- Civil engineering (full engineering design process)
- Detailed calculations
- Design of roads, bicycle paths and surroundings
