- Client Municipality of Drimmelen
- Location Terheijden
- Status In Progress
Safe, liveable and sustainable Safety, sustainability and a good living environment. Those are key words for the activities in the centre of Terheijden with a new layout of the main road and the construction of a heat network. As of August 2019, Strukton Civiel Zuid is working in Terheijden on behalf of the municipality of Drimmelen. Here, the through route will be redesigned and made safer. Sustainability also plays an important role. Part of the work is the construction of a heat network as an alternative to connections to natural gas.
A new road layout and a sustainable initiative
A special feature of this project is the construction of a heat network. The municipality of Drimmelen is collaborating with the Traais Energie Collectief (TEC). The Traais Energie Collectief is a cooperation by and for residents of Terheijden. The collective is constructing the Traais warmtenetwerk (heat network) in the centre of Terheijden. By means of this heat network, residents in the area can provide their homes with sustainable heat via the Traais Warmtebedrijf (Heat Company). Such a heat network connection makes gas superfluous.
The redevelopment of the main road in Terheijden will involve the application of traffic-reducing measures by narrowing the road profile, raising the sidewalks and constructing platforms at the connecting roads. The sewerage system will meet the municipality's requirements. This will prevent water from entering the street in the event of heavy precipitation.
