Drive Under the water | Aqueduct Veluwemeer in Netherlands

There are so many amazing things in the world that sometimes you just do not have time to cover everything. We do not get tired of admiring human genius and share the story of a unique bridge that takes your breath away when you look at it. In 2002, the world saw the Veluwemeer Aqueduct, the creation of the best engineers that connected the mainland of the Netherlands and the man-made island of Flevoland.

This tunnel is called N302 which is located in the city of Harderwijk in East Holland. The Veluwemeer Aqueduct Bridge in Holland connects the mainland of the Netherlands and the man-made island of Flevoland. The creative creation of Dutch engineers allows cars to move continuously without interfering with the movement of water transport.

Bridge for Boats, Water bridge over road


A variety of ideas were discussed, including an underwater tunnel and an ordinary bridge, but the projects would be very expensive, and they would take much more time to build them. The idea was that both land and water transport could move continuously, without traffic jams, ferries and delays. As a result, everything conceived came true: land and water transport do not interfere with each other. Pedestrians have not been forgotten either - specially equipped sidewalks on the sides of the road have been left for them.

The astonishing solution - the water bridge - was brought to life. They did not forget about pedestrians either - specially equipped sidewalks on the sides of the road were left for them. Today, 28,000 vehicles a day pass over the 3-meter-deep bridge, and boats calmly cross the water surface above the bridge. The tunnel is 25 meters long and 19 meters wide, and is 3 meters deep down from the surface of the water. Allowing small boats to pass through
