Issue

Flood hazard

An increased flood hazard because the flood defence does not meet the requirements and/or due to extreme conditions.

The boulevard in Scheveningen was a weak link in the dutch coastline. Besides that, the economic and touristic function of the boulevard were insufficient.

Solution

Combination Dike Scheveningen

The seawall is improved by a combination of an underground dike and sand supplementation. This prevents the dike from being too high and the beach from being too wide. Public space is created in a wave-shaped coastline which is constructed on top of the dike. Height differences are involved to create space for recreation and tourism.

Pros

  • The safety requirements for flood defense are met.
  • Accessible by bike or public transport.
  • Parts with clear view at sea alternate with entrances to pavilion islands were several activities take place.
