RIVER LEEK ‘ROOM FOR RIVER’ COMPREHENSIVE RIVER MANAGEMENT

This project is part of the national program ‘Room for the River’ that secures the future of the Dutch rivers. For this particular project, NLUS designed three options for the development of the river banks. Starting point was to make sure the capacity of the river was increased, resulting in a ‘preferred’ design of a small gully in the bottleneck of the river, creating a small island which could house a recreational facility, a beach and a marina.
In addition, new natural qualities can be introduced along the new, lowered river banks. Additional housing projects have been investigated to increase the total quality of the area.
