A24 Blankenburg Connection
The A24 Blankenburg connection (‘Blankenburgverbinding’) is constructed to improve the accessibility of the Port of Rotterdam and Greenport Westland to the hinterland. This project stimulates the economy and accessibility of the entire region. The new highway connects the A15 east of Rozenburg and the A20 west of Vlaardingen. The connection will be an alternative route to the existing A4 route between the Kethelplein and Beneluxplein junctions.
The project consists of the design, realization, and maintenance of additional lanes to the A20 and the realization of the A24: a new highway containing the Hollandtunnel (a land tunnel) and the Maasdeltatunnel (an immersed tunnel) under the river Het Scheur. The new national highway will be opened in 2024.
The BAAK consortium entered into a long-term DBFM agreement with Rijkswaterstaat for the project. BAAK consists of Macquarie Capital, Ballast Nedam, and Deme. BAAK will design, build, finance, and maintain the project for the next 20 years. The project is now in the construction phase.
Rivoir organizes and manages the concession. For BAAK, we take care of project management, financial management, process management, asset management and contract management.
