Project

The cycle and horse-riding tunnel was built to make it safe for cyclists and riders to cross the road and also to increase safety at the intersection of the Let de Stigterpad. This is a new cycle path being built over the crest of the ridge. After the tunnel was built, the entrances to the tunnel were realised by Infratechnieken, after which fellow subsidiary Reef Infra laid the asphalt in the tunnel. Lastly, the tunnel lighting system was installed by Strukton Worksphere.
