    Gives an overview of the history of the Canal trough South Beveland wich was putinto service in 1866. Outlines the consequences about the modification of the closing of the Eastern Scheldt for the improvement plan of the canal. This encloses alterations to accomodate four-barge push-tows, removal of the locks at Wemeldinge despite the tidal movements in the Eastern Scheldt, construction of new locks at Hansweert, similar to those in the Philips Dam and retaining the open nature of the canal with its lifting bridges. The improvement works which started in 1983 has been implemented into stages. The new eastern lock is scheduled to come into use in 1988 and the western lock two years later.
