Project description

In 2020, the Department of Public Works started reinforcing the flood defence in Marken. In order to keep protecting Marken from flooding, the flood defence must be reinforced. At present, the flood defence has stability problems and is too low in places. That is why the Department of Public Works is reinforcing the Zuidkade and Westkade, so that the flood defence will be sturdy and safe again for another 50 years.
