Highway N470

Project start/finish: 2019-2020 

De N470 Geeft Energie


The Province of South Holland is carrying out the project 'de N470 geeft energie' (trans. 'the N470 produces energy') in collaboration with various partners. The highway N470 is a special project for the province Zuid-Holland. Major maintenance is needed to improve the quality of the road. With this planned maintenance, the N470 will be the most sustainable road in the Netherlands. 

It is the first road to be CO2-negative renewed over its entire length. This also improves traffic flow and safety perception to the latest insights. From spring 2019 to spring 2020, the road will be renewed in parts by construction company Boskalis. Most work takes place in the evenings and at night, so that road users experience the least possible inconvenience.
