The bridge is intended for the Theemswegtracé. There will be two arched bridges in this section.


In August, parts of the second steel arched bridge will also be delivered to the building site near the Thomassentunnel. This bridge will be built there as well. It regards an arched bridge with a main span of 156.1 m and bridges of 56.6 and 52.4 m respectively.

The overall length of the bridge is 269.1 m, while it will be quite prominently in sight from next year, as from April road traffic will pass underneath the A15.

Both bridges will have their final location in the spring of 2020. The construction of the Theemsweg route is still going according to plan, and the first train is expected to pass by the end of 2021.

In the Rotterdam port area, the harbour railway, the first part of the Betuweroute, will be relocated. The new 4-kilometre stretch of track, the Theemsweg route, will be completed at the end of 2021 and will provide a solution to the capacity bottleneck at the Caland Bridge near Rozenburg.
