Dike Reinforcement at Kinderdijk
A safety check revealed that the dike along the Lek river did not meet the required safety standards over a 10-km-long section between Kinderdijk and Schoonhovenseveer. The dike was restored to the required strength for the Rivierenland Water Authority. Iv-Infra made a significant contribution to the total design process by managing the design work and handling the systems engineering. Iv-Infra has also designed the riverwards dike reinforcements. The weakened old dike and the new dike had to be protected against flooding which required constant alertness and turned both the design and planning of the work outside the dikes into a logistical puzzle.
