Accessibility and mobility

The connections to and from the Wadden Islands and Wadden Sea ports are subject to changes in nature.

The bed of the Wadden Sea has risen in spite of the rising sea level and is still doing so. Partly because of this, we are dealing with increasing quantities of silt and a changing tidal current, which in turn affect the depth and width of shipping channels. In time, the area is likely to experience accelerated sea level rise, which will create new challenges. In addition, new sustainable requirements will be imposed on the way we organise the transport chain and ports and on the way we travel. The commissioning parties and stakeholders will address these accessibility and mobility issues with the help of the PRW.
