Truck Parking Bodaanweg

Rotterdam Harbour Area

The occupancy rate of the current truck parking in the Waalhaven is so high that the inconvenience of improperly parked trucks in the area increases. This was a major reason to quickly expand the parking capacity. The project Truck Parking Bodaanweg was realised at the Antonie Bodaanweg in the Waalhaven and had some challenges. The planning to make the current ground suitable for realisation was very short. Next to this short period of time, there was possibly a cable oil contamination. In addition, there was a complicated issue to realise the software to control the security, access and payment systems on time. The project was created in a building team.
