Discription of the project
The ‘’Meanderende Maas’’ project will strengthen the Brabant Meuse dike from Ravenstein to Lith, give the Meuse more room on the Gelderland and Brabant sides and make the area more beautiful and economically stronger.
New legal safety standards from 2017 make it necessary to better protect around 270,000 residents, many businesses and valuable infrastructure behind the dike and in Oss and Den Bosch from high water.
