November 15,2019. The day that the bicycle tunnel of de Maastunnel in Rotterdam is closed down for about 7 months. The tunnel, which is known as the oldest submerged tunnel in the Netherlands, is used by about 6,500 cyclists every day. This National Monument of 1936 is due for a thorough renovation. The municipality of Rotterdam therefore has the companies Mobilis and Kreeft Beton Techniek B.V. appointed as contractor and subcontractor for this project, respectively.
After months of work, during which the walls and ceiling have been completely renovated, it is time for the construction of the wearing layers and cast floors. HIM Products also contributed to this. The company specializing in wear layers and cast floors was therefore an essential part of this project. In collaboration with subcontractor Kreeft Beton Techniek B.V. a colored wear layer has been applied. (see picture).
Nearly finished, he 6,500 cyclist who cycled through the Maastunnel every day only have to use the ferry for a month, before they can go through the new bicycle tunnel again.
