Abstract
    The Province of Zeeland is eager to build a fixed link across the Western Scheldt to replace two ferry services. There are two main options for the design of this link, a bridge-tunnel combination or a bored tunnel. The latter will have no influence on shipping traffic on the Western Scheldt. The first option, however, will have an influence on navigation. This influence is minimised by prescribing strict limiting conditions for the design and construction.
