Middelharnis Sommelsdijk and Dirksland road S47 (N215)

the Sommelsdijk entrance

The entrance to Sommelsdijk was much more subtle. The bicycle crossing cut through two convex 19 meter diameter spherical mounds in median strip. These were planned by me as an echo of the much larger cones. Now the mounds are just a reminder of what could have been. The bicycle route cuts through the mounds and is flanked by concrete walls following the convex contour. They also gave a sense of protection because of their height, which is 90cm. The noise barriers flanking the passageway into the residential area are made of wood and covered by a thick covering of ivy. They are built up of short lengths which overlap.
