About the A4 work

During the work, the asphalt is replaced by a quieter type of asphalt (double-layered zoab) . We also replace various joints.

The road network in the province of South Holland needs periodic maintenance. This includes the renovation of asphalt and the maintenance of works of art, such as overpasses. With this maintenance we ensure that traffic in South Holland can continue to run smoothly and safely.
