The Waddenzeedijk on Texel isn’t safe enough in various places. In total, about 14 kilometers of dyke will be reinforced on behalf of the Hollands Noorderkwartier District Water Board on Texel. The reinforcement will ensure that Texel is well protected against high water from the Wadden Sea for now and in the future.
Before the dyke can be reinforced, the (tar-containing) asphalt must be removed. Hein Heun Sloopwerken B.V. and TD&R have joined forces to rip the (tar-containing) asphalt on part of the dyke. For this purpose, the tar layer is first removed and then the asphalt layer of approximately 50 centimeters thick is removed piece by piece.
