What solutions can you think of to realize a 100% sustainable highway?
Highway A58 is one of the largest projects in the Rijkswaterstaat (Public Works and Water Management) portfolio. Rijkswaterstaat already did a lot of research and design to come up with a future proof highway.
This is a major challenge, with a specific need for:
A better understanding of new techniques that are available for sustainable highway
A better understanding of new organisational processes and structures and forms of cooperation
To find solutions, we will be examining the database of nature, which has been filled for over 3.8 billion years with precious knowledge to solve these types of challenges, and we are going to do this together with you. Our goal is to apply useful and inspiring solutions to real life situations.
