Minimum impact on the landscape, both in shape and in ecological footprint. On the Winschoten side the approach of the bridge is in the shape of a spiral. The Location has been carefully chosen so the beautiful large trees along the edge can stay. Once on bridge level the route transfers to a wafer thin bridge. The Winschoterdiep canal and Motorway, meadows, water, roads, and underground infrastructure are crossed in a single elegant sweep.
