Building a second avioduct over one of the busiest highways in the Netherlands was a complex organisation. The new avioduct is 79 at 72 meters and has a total area of ​​15.000 square meter . In order to be able to bear the weight of future types of aircraft, 900 foundation piles were needed. The new viaduct crosses the A4 motorway, Schipholtunnels and Abdijtunnel. The construction and opening of the new avioduct was completed on schedule and within budget.

With doubling lane
Quebec we kill two birds with one stone: the situation is becoming clearer for Air Traffic Control the Netherlands, which controls taxiing aircraft and aircraft no longer have to be on top of each other to wait. In this way we increase the safety of Schiphol and at the same time improve our services at the airport. The completion of the new avioduct is a great milestone in the doubling of the Quebec carriageway. 1119108
