The tender process has been successful. The tenderers have submitted plans and these have been assessed on the topics of sustainability, environmental management and risk management. Oosterhof Holman scored best on the price-quality ratio and won the tender. With the exception of a few preparatory activities, work will start in the summer holidays of 2019. The work will take about three years in total. More information will follow.
