Juliana Bridge in Zaandijk now officially opened 

Royal Haskoning were celebrating the opening of the Juliana Bridge in Zaandijk, the Netherlands this week. Ms Elisabeth Post, executive councillor of the province of North-Holland, Ronald Ootjes of Zaanstad and Mr de Regtuijt from BAM were present at the opening. Joris Smits and Syb van Breda of Royal Haskoning Architecten were responsible for the design of the bridge which is the fourth in a series of bridges designed by Royal Haskoning for Zaanstad over the past few years.

Joris Smits commented, "In view of the close proximity of the historical area of Zaansche Schans, the bridge design has been kept modest; a contemporary design which respects its historical surroundings. It is light-footed and transparent but also unpretentious. It offers plenty of space for pedestrians and cyclists by providing them with their own bridge deck. The measures implemented to counter the movement of the bridge have been cleverly incorporated into the 7th pillar to ensure a smooth flowing line from shore to shore."

The Juliana Bridge follows the Butterfly Bridge crossing the Thorbeckeweg, the Westzanerpolder Bridge in the Hoogtij commercial zone and the Prins Bernhard Bridge crossing the Zaan river in Zaandam.
