Room for the River Programme

Room for the River Programme

The goal of the Dutch Room for the River Programme is to give the river more room to be able to manage higher water levels. At more than 30 locations, measures are taken to give the river space to flood safely. Moreover, the measures are designed in such a way that they improve the quality of the immediate surroundings. The Room for the River programme will be completed by approximately 2018.
