Stormvloedkering Oosterschelde

Begun in 1976, the dam on the eastern Escaut was inaugurated 10 years later. The road passing over the dam opened in 1987. This 3km-long hydraulic masterpiece is unique in the world. The initial dam project, which involved the complete enclosure of the eastern Escaut, was modified to retain a link between the estuary and the sea. To learn more, visit the exhibition on the delta on the history of Dutch hydraulic projects and the futuristic water pavilion.
